Legacy Giving

Protect your loved ones and permanently strengthen WUWM’s ability to be here for future generations.

When you include WUWM in your long-term estate and financial plans, you leave the community you love with the fact-based, incisive media that has come to be such an important part of your day-to-day life.

Your legacy gift is a wonderful testament to your commitment to a free and independent media and to carrying on WUWM’s mission to serve your community well into the future.
