Legacy Society

In showing her genuine love and deep commitment to the children of The Home, Mildred Gregg Wendlandt gave a $500,000 bequest to The Home from her estate. In an effort to recognize her generosity of spirit and commitment to our children, The Mildred Gregg Wendlandt Legacy Society was established in 2004. By remembering The Settlement Home in your estate plans, you too will become a member of our Legacy Society. You will be recognized on our Legacy Society plaque, serving as a reminder to others the impact one life can have on another.

Giving opportunities are personalized for each donor. You can bequeath a certain amount or percentage of funds, or make the gift contingent on certain events. You may do so through a will, insurance policies, Charitable Gift Annuities, or another avenue that better meets your needs. We wish to do what is best for you, your family and all other beneficiaries.

Giving is…

  • Simple and easy- You can set up a non-revocable Charitable Gift Annuity through the Austin Community Foundation. (No attorney needed and held at Austin Community Foundation.)
  • Flexible or revocable- When you make a charitable bequest to The Settlement Home, you are free to amend your plans until your will or trust goes into effect. (Please be sure to consult with your estate planner or attorney.)
  • Tax Relief- If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift is entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction. (Please be sure to consult with your estate planner or attorney.)

Below is a sample statement that you can add or attach to your will.

I hereby direct $______ (or _____% of my residual estate) in cash, securities or other property to The Settlement Club Endowment Fund for the benefit of The Settlement Home for Children. Our Tax ID # is 51-0215255

“We can continue to work whether we are physically here or not. Our children will be helped.”
