Planned Giving

Many of WCNY’s most ardent supporters have included WCNY in their estate plans. In some cases, these plans involve a simple bequest in a will; others make WCNY the beneficiary of a retirement plan or insurance policy, or gifting an unneeded insurance policy to WCNY. In certain instances, WCNY may accept gifts of real estate or collectibles, and gifts of securities are always appreciated.

By making these types of gifts, individuals become members of the WCNY Legacy Society and help maintain WCNY’s important services and programs for future generations.
