Leave a Legacy

You can support Wilder in ways that could leave a lasting legacy. In addition, these gifts could result in tax benefits or other advantages for you and your family. You don’t need a lot of assets or a huge estate to change lives.

Examples:

  • Gifts of stock or securities
  • Gifts from your estate
  • Gifts from your retirement benefit plan assets (pension plan, IRA or 401(k))
  • Life insurance policies

Please schedule a meeting with us or discuss options with your professional advisor.
