Legacy and Planned Giving allows you to create a legacy of philanthropy and support the work of Free Wheelchair Mission for years to come.
The other thing we’ve done is to include Free Wheelchair Mission in our wills. Thinking about how you leave a legacy: the things you’ve done, the life you’ve led, the impact you have on others, on family, friends, community, and humanity at large.

Free Wheelchair Mission is a bright spot in the world. The incredible difference they make in the world on individual, community, and global levels, as well as the structures they put in place for continued excellence and longevity, are very evident. The opportunity to continue to support Free Wheelchair Mission after I am gone gives me great joy.
After establishing our charitable fund, we added it to our trust, in our estate plan, to ensure that the organizations we wanted to support in perpetuity would continue. Adding Free Wheelchair Mission into our legacy plan, we felt confident that people will be lifted off the ground and into mobility for many decades to come.
Bob and Val Mohle
I have long had a will and trust, and Free Wheelchair Mission has been included as a beneficiary for many years. When I retired and revised my trust based on the fact that I would now be living on my savings, Free Wheelchair Mission and my church were the two organizations that I knew I would still keep as beneficiaries and would still donate to annually now, as well.
Now that we are retired, we are on a fixed income and wish we could do more and give more to Free Wheelchair Mission. Then, we thought, what if we were to include Free Wheelchair Mission in our wills and give a larger amount in the future rather than a smaller amount today? Legacy Giving is a great way for those of us who are on a budget to leave a legacy and continue supporting this cause that we love.

Mary and I have been contributing to Free Wheelchair Mission since 2002. We believe this to be the most effective and efficient charity we give to with the lowest overhead. I am a Financial Advisor and consider this to be my best investment recommendation.

We appreciatively accept several legacy giving options:
Gifts Through Wills and Revocable Living/Family Trusts
You can support Free Wheelchair Mission with a gift that doesn't impact your cash flow, lifestyle, or family security.
By designating Free Wheelchair Mission as a beneficiary in your will or trust, your assets remain in your control during your lifetime. You can modify your gift to address changing circumstances. Under current tax law, there is no upper limit on the estate tax deduction for charitable bequests.
The gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your total estate or one or more specific personal assets from your estate. Additionally, your gift may designate a certain purpose of your choice within Free Wheelchair Mission operations or may simply supplement our general fund.
Contact your attorney regarding steps to add Free Wheelchair Mission to your will.
