Create a Legacy


The kind and generous people who remember the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Firemen’s Fund in their estate plans are a special group. They’re visionary and uncommonly dedicated. We invite you to join these committed philanthropists by including a donation in your will or trust.

Examples of Planned Gift Arrangements

  • Bequest through a will
  • Gift through a living trust or other non-charitable trust
  • Gift of Life Insurance
  • Beneficiary Designation in retirement plans
  • Remainder interest in a personal residence or property

Planned gift techniques such as these may enable you to make a significant contribution to help those in need, while also allowing you to achieve your own financial and estate planning goals.
