Legacy Society

The Mildred Gregg Wendlandt Legacy Society started when one person realized that she could do extraordinary things, long after her lifetime.
Her foresight paved the way for providing for the future of caring for abused and neglected children.

By remembering The Settlement Home in your estate plans, you will become a member of The Mildred Gregg Wendlandt Legacy Society. Your gift will provide income to support our mission for years to come.

The Legacy Society is open to everyone.

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…

  • Flexible or revocable- Make a charitable bequest to The Settlement Home. (Please be sure to consult with your estate planner or attorney.)  Until your will or trust goes into effect, you are free to amend your plans.
  • Tax Relief- If your estate is subject to estate tax, your gift may be entitled to an estate tax charitable deduction for the gift’s full value. (Please be sure to consult with your estate planner or attorney.)
  • Simple and Easy-You can set up a Charitable Gift Annuity through the institution of your choice.

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.

For your information, our Tax ID # is 51-0215255.

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