Legacy Gifts

 

Dear Wisconsin Plaintiff Trial Lawyers,

President Wagner has asked me to initiate a Legacy Program for WAJ.  What is it?  A Legacy Program allows any member to provide an annual gift to WAJ or any of its programs after you pass.  In other words, provide for support in your estate plan.  On the assumption you want WAJ to continue to flourish into the future, this is one way to ensure that.  Any amounts would be welcome.  I intend to do that, and I hope you will consider it as well.

Respectfully,

Bob

 

 

 


Ready to start paying it forward?

Make a lasting impact by extending your support of the Wisconsin Civil Justice Education Foundation (WCJEF) and/or the Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) Operations Fund with a legacy gift. Select an option that works for you and your family and let us know if you would like to put your donation to work today or gift us after your lifetime.

Giving Options

The WCJEF/WAJ funds are dedicated to the advancement of the civil justice system and to promote its mission.   

  • Make a One Time Gift
  • Give a Monthly/Quarterly Gift
  • ​Become a Lifetime Donor with a Legacy Gift

Legacy Gift Options

Beneficiary Designations

Designate WCJEF/WAJ as a beneficiary to receive retirement plan and insurance policy assets. This is accomplished by completing a form that is separate from your will.  This option is the easiest way to provide a legacy gift.

A Gift in Your Will or Living Trust

Gift WCJEF/WAJ in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest. 

Endowed Gifts

By creating an endowment with WCJEF/WAJ you can provide a gift that lasts for generations.  Throughout your career you worked to make a difference, and wouldn't it be nice to know you could continue to make an impact - a difference - even after you are gone? 

An endowed gift ensures the future of WCJEF/WAJ.  Your endowment donation is invested and the income from the investment is used to carry out the mission of the organization. The principal remains invested to perpetuate the fund.
