Heritage Partner Society

The Heritage Partner Society is made up of individuals who have established named endowments or included the Wilder Foundation in their estate plans through outright gifts, life-income arrangements, wills, trusts, insurance policies or other means. Estate gifts may be designated for the Wilder Endowment Fund or for a specific Foundation program, project or facility.  These gifts, together with those of other Heritage Partners, help Wilder impact the lives of thousands of Saint Paul residents today and for generations to come. 

An annual recognition event celebrates and thanks these generous friends. Please contact Paula Kringle, Individual Giving Officer at 651-280-2466 or email to discuss your interest in becoming a Wilder Heritage Partner.
