Reasons & Ways to Give
Stepping Stones is grateful to the friends and organizations who contribute to our mission to share and preserve the home, legacy, and archive of Bill and Lois Wilson. Below are ways to give and testimonials of loyal supporters about why they are committed to supporting our work.
In 2016, we began making a monthly gift to Stepping Stones Foundation to make sure the historic home and archives are available for generations to come. Since then we have watched as critical projects have been completed to ensure the future of Stepping Stones. We wholeheartedly support the good work of the Foundation and hope you will too. – Kurt & Michelle, Sioux Falls, SD

Each year, my husband and I give to Stepping Stones for their continued good stewardship of the historic site and to pay tribute to all that the Wilsons did for us. – Amy T., Washington DC

Keeping it Simple
The simplest way to make a planned gift is to include Stepping Stones Foundation as a beneficiary in one of the following:
To include Stepping Stones Foundation as a beneficiary in your will, policy, or other planning documents, please have your lawyer or plan administrator identify Stepping Stones Foundation as follows:
"Stepping Stones Foundation, a nonprofit corporation, organized and existing under the laws of the State of New York, with principal business address of P.O. Box 452, Bedford Hills, NY, 10507, and Federal Tax I.D. number 13-3031164."
Stepping Stones Foundation does not have a monetary limit to planned gifts and does not have a one-time limit.
For gifts through policies (life insurance, investment funds, etc.) or other planning documents some donors choose to contact their plan administrator to reflect their wishes (percentages or amounts and our name, ID and address) in the plan documents.
