Bravo Legacy Circle

The Van Wezel Foundation Bravo Legacy Circle recognizes and thanks the group of generous individuals who have left a legacy gift to the Van Wezel Foundation, payable at the time of passing. Bravo Legacy Circle members have remembered the Van Wezel Foundation in their estate plans in many ways – through their wills, retirement plans, life-income plans and many other creative planned-giving arrangements.

In appreciation for these gifts, Bravo Legacy Circle members have the opportunity to deepen their relationship with the Van Wezel Foundation through special invitations to complimentary events throughout the year.

Please let the Van Wezel Foundation know you’ve designated a gift as part of your legacy and estate planning. We want to recognize you and thank you for being a part of our Bravo Legacy Circle.
