Donating property for deserving veterans
Army veteran Mark Nehls served his country while stationed at Soto Cano Air Base in Honduras. He was assigned to the 555th Military Police Company.
After Mark’s discharge from the military, he received help from a couple of DAV benefits advocates in filing his benefits claim. That’s when Mark decided to join DAV.
“They took the time to explain the process and potential delays,” he said. “As a member, I now speak to other disabled veterans about the free benefits assistance available through DAV.”
In honor of Mark’s fellow disabled veterans, he and his wife donated a piece of property so that our nation’s heroes can receive the support they need through our programs and services. Because of health issues, the Nehls were unable to build on the lot they had purchased in Mark’s hometown. Recurring medical appointments meant that he needed to stay close to the VA medical center where he receives care.
“The idea of donating the property for the benefit of DAV was an easy decision,” Mark said. “We hope the sale of our property helps those programs continue.”
Did you know that donating real estate to support DAV and veterans is fast and easy? The proceeds from your property donation allow DAV to continue providing lifetime support for veterans of all generations and their families.
Our program takes any property type (land, homes and commercial) in any location so long as there is equity. Even if you owe back taxes, have a mortgage balance or have deferred maintenance, it’s no problem. We will pay off all loans, liens, commissions owed and all closing costs. If you have a real estate asset that is costing you money or not being used, donating it is a great way to give back. You may even claim a significant tax deduction!
