WUWM Legacy Circle

The WUWM Legacy Circle honors all those who have included WUWM in their estate plans. Confirming your gift intentions and joining WUWM’s Legacy Circle permits WUWM to express its gratitude to you during your lifetime, and helps WUWM plan for the future.

Your estate gift to WUWM is a wonderful way for you to leave the community you love with the fact-based, incisive news and compelling programing that has come to be such an important part of your day-to-day life. Estate gifts like yours are one of WUWM’s most significant sources for future planning and permanently strengthen WUWM’s ability to provide this vital community resource to future generations.

Legacy member benefits include an annual appreciation event and VIP Briefings.
