Why Donate to The National Veterans Wellness and Healing Center?

Since 2009, the National Veterans Wellness and Healing Center (NVWHC) has conducted 37 retreats in the state of New Mexico providing a powerful healing experience to 386 veterans and 366 spouses/partners from over 20 different states. Using a proven seven-day retreat process, NVWHC can achieve results that significantly surpass others using only traditional methods alone. In 2018 we began hosting an annual retreat specifically designed to meet the needs of our Military Sexual Trauma (MST) survivor community. As we look to the future, with proper funding, our goal is to begin offering this life-changing retreat experience to first responders and their spouses/partners.

In addition to our PTS retreat program, in 2019 the NVWHC established a “Continued Care Program” designed to provide New Mexico veterans and their spouses/partners with easy access to mental health resources and complimentary alternative medicine modalities at no charge. With multiple providers located throughout the state, New Mexico veterans and partners/spouses who enroll in this “Self-Care” program are afforded the opportunity to take advantage of free counseling, massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, Reiki, Tai Chi, holistic coaching, EFT and EMDR session at no cost. Currently, there are over 100 veterans participating in our Continued Care Program.

Although we are extremely proud of what NVWHC has accomplished in the last eleven years of service, our work is not close to being done. With the increasing need for additional mental health resources for both the military community, as well as, first responders, now more than ever, it is critical that we continue pushing forward.

In order to meet this increasing demand, in 2021 the NVWHC will launch its national fundraising campaign with the goal of establishing its very own 36,000 square foot retreat facility. We have recently acquired 18 acres directly across from our Nation’s first Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire, New Mexico. Once funded and constructed, this facility will provide year-round retreats and continued care services to veterans, first responders and their spouses/partners and families from across the nation for years to come.

Your Donations in Action

As a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, our success, as well as our future, is dependent on your donations and support. Help us continue making a difference in the lives of our veteran families. Your donation will go towards directly funding the following:

  • Out-of-State PTS retreat participants – donations cover 100% of cost for out-of-state veterans and their spouses attending the NVWHC seven-day intensive PTS retreat program ($5,000 per couple / Total Retreat Cost = $40,000)
  • Cabin/Building Sponsorship Campaign – donations will be applied to a building fund designed to establish a $2.5 million-dollar retreat facility in Angel Fire, New Mexico. This retreat facility will not only provide the dedicated space required to deliver these critical retreats on a year around basis, but also allow us to help three-times the number of veteran families than ever before! Check out the ‘Future Facility’ tab for more details.

Individual Retirement Account (IRA) donations:

If you are 72 or older, you can now make gifts directly from your individual IRA to NVWHC in two unique ways.

An Outright Gift: Use your required minimum distribution (up to $100,000 per year) without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal.
A Life-Income Gift: Choose a one-time $50,000 option to purchase a life-income gift (i.e. Charitable Gift Annuity). The income tax due will be distributed over your lifetime income payments.

How it works:

  • You must be age 70 1/2 or older at the time the gift is made.
  • You must request from the IRA plan custodian a direct transfer of funds to NVWHC, or use the IRA checkbook if provided.
  • Gifts can be used to satisfy your IRA required minimum distribution.
  • Gifts can be designated for a specific NVWHC project or where most needed.
  • Funds held in other retirement plans such as a 401(k) or 403(b) plan are not eligible but may be rolled over to a standard IRA to then be used for a tax-free rollover gift or charity.

*NVWHC does not provide legal, tax, or investment advice. Individuals should consult with their own professional advisors before proceeding with this type of plan.
