Recognizing National Estate Planning Awareness Week With The Van Wezel Foundation

National Estate Planning

A majority of Americans do not have an estate plan in place, making estate planning a critically overlooked component of financial wellness. 

If you are one of the 56% of Americans without an estate plan, now is the time to start the planning process to ensure the growth, conservation, and transfer of your wealth. A well-developed plan gives you a strategy to maintain your financial security through your lifetime and ensure the intended transfer of your property and assets when it’s time, while considering the unique circumstances of the family.

If you are interested in leaving a legacy that supports your passion for the arts and will continue to meet your financial needs, we hope you consider reaching out to the Van Wezel Foundation. As your charitable partner, the Foundation offers some easy options on how you can include us as a charitable beneficiary in your estate plans. Through an estate gift, you are creating a personal legacy that will foster and grow the performing arts in our community, and provide meaningful arts education initiatives that bring the arts alive for students, families and teachers.
