Help us bring hope to future generations of families in need

In August 2013, Milwaukee Habitat received a legacy gift from the estate of Robert and Evelyn Klug, who passed away in 2011 and 2013, respectively. They had been supporters of Milwaukee Habitat since 1995.

The Klugs had a rich life in retirement as active volunteers for many civic and charitable causes. They were well known for their big hearts, devoting countless volunteer hours and financial support. Bob and Evie were the embodiment of happiness through service.

According to an Allianz American Legacies study, a true legacy is a combination of emotional and financial elements, while an inheritance is simply financial. Mr. & Mrs. Klug established a legacy that provides for future generations and reflects their personal history, values and vision.

Bequests
Bequests of any size are appreciated. Whether you wish to donate your entire estate, a portion of your estate, a fixed dollar amount, or a percentage of your assets, bequests are easy to make. If you already have an existing will, your attorney can help you add a new gift or change a provision by making a simple amendment (a codicil).

Retirement Plan
Retirement plan assets may be an advantageous gift since the combined effect of income and estate taxes that can result from leaving these assets to your family may be 75% or more.  We suggest that you talk with your advisors about whether this type of gift will work for you.

Life Insurance
Like reviewing your will, it’s a good idea to periodically evaluate all of your insurance policies to determine their current relevance to you and your family. Consider naming Milwaukee Habitat as a percentage of your life insurance – what may seem like a small amount could turn out to make a huge impact
