Legacy Building

Would you consider WILC to be a part of your Legacy?

One way to help our program fundraise is by adding WILC as a beneficiary to your Will or Trust.

A gift in your will or trust is a popular way to support our work and still use your assets during your lifetime. The following is an example of how to add Wisconsin Independent Learning College, Inc. as a primary or contingent beneficiary to your will or trust. As always, we encourage you to work with your attorney or financial advisor prior to commitment.

Sample gift language: I, [name] give [insert specific $ dollar amount or % percentage] to Wisconsin Independent Learning College, Inc., AKA WILC, currently located at 1936 MacArthur Rd, Waukesha, WI, 53188 in support of its mission by providing a spectrum of opportunities for teens and young adults with autism specific educational training.

A Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) provides you or your designated beneficiaries with a stream of income for your lifetime or theirs, or for a specific time frame or term of years. After the trust terminates, the accumulated principal or "remainder" goes to Wisconsin Independent Learning College, Inc. The trust itself is tax-exempt, so appreciated assets such as stock, can be put in the trust and sold without incurring capital gains tax. A CRT can provide income for life or a term of years to the donor and any beneficiaries for life or a term of years. the payment can be fixed (Annuity trust) or variable, based on year-end market value of trust (unitrust).
