Have you considered the WPGA Scholarship Fund in your will?
The WPGA scholarship is alive and well thanks to ongoing member support and alumni contributions. Recently, the fund received nearly $30,000 from the estate of an alumnus who caddied at Edgewood Country Club, attended Carnegie Mellon University and enjoyed a successful career. These larger gifts not only ensure the long-term viability of the program, but allow us to reach more students and provide more meaningful support in defraying today’s high cost of education. As you are well aware, higher education might not otherwise be attainable for some of these outstanding students.
We intend to help as many outstanding students as possible and we need your help. Please consider remembering the WPGA Scholarship Fund in your legacy planning. This will not only benefit the fund but there can be tax advantages to making charitable bequests in your estate plan. Please seek legal counsel to determine the best options for your situation. If you have additional questions then please contact the WPGA offices at 412-826-2180.
