Other Ways to Give

Susie-19Memorial or Honorarium Gifts

Many people like to give gifts to WACF in memory or honor of a child, a friend or loved one.  Some make a gift in honor of a special event like a birthday or anniversary.  The reasons to give are limited by your imagination.  When a gift is given in this way we will send the honoree or the honoree’s family a letter letting them know of the gift.

Join the Legacy Society

Include the WACF in your estate plan, and you may be surprised to find out how inexpensive this can be.  Considering changing an insurance policy to add WACF as an additional beneficiary, or ask your attorney to prepare a simple inexpensive codicil to your existing will, creating a bequest for the Foundation.  Click here for more details on planned gifts.
