Planned Giving

Planned Giving

You can leave a bequest or estate gift through planned giving which allows you to make an enduring gift to support Milwaukee County’s parks and/or The Park People.

For more details, please contact us at or 414-273-7275 

Some examples of planned gifts include:

Gifts in a Will or Trust

A bequest through your will or a gift from your trust allows you to support your charitable interests while retaining complete control of your assets during your lifetime.

We can accept cash, stock and other assets.  Bequests can be a fixed dollar amount or a percentage of the net estate.

Life Insurance

Life insurance is a simple way to leave a philanthropic mark.  You can name the Park People of Milwaukee County as a beneficiary.

Retirement Plan Assets

For many people, retirement plan assets like IRAs, 401(k) or 403(b) may be your largest single asset. Naming the Park People as a beneficiary of your retirement assets is a great way to make a lasting gift.

Since the Park People of Milwaukee County, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, your planned gift may be entitled to a charitable income or estate tax deduction.  Your tax advisor can help you choose the best type of gift for your specific circumstances.

Please contact us if you are planning to include the Park People in your estate planning at 414-273-7275 or  We would like to recognize your commitment and inspire others by listing your name on our website.
