Plan ahead. We hear that advice over and over as we grow in age and experience. The lesson is just as valuable after retirement, as you make decisions about how you will manage your insurance and assets.

One of those decisions may be finding a way to benefit a charity that has helped you or a family member over the years. By naming the Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired in your will, the services you received will be available for the next generation of people with vision loss. Upon receiving notice of your intention to benefit the Council, you will be welcomed as a member of our growing Legacy Circle.

Two new members of the Legacy Circle recently made the decision to leave a bequest to the Council. Eye diseases are common in their family and the Council has been at their side as those family members adjusted to life with low vision. They chose to leave a legacy gift to the Council because of the assistance that was offered, the knowledge they gained, and to make sure those same services will be available for future generations.

You, too, can make a gift that will change lives for the better. For more information, contact Lori Werbeckes at (608)237-8114 or visit the Council’s website at
