Planned Giving

Milwaukee Rep’s Limelight Legacy Society was established to recognize those who have made an estate or planned gift to Milwaukee Rep and will make a significant contribution to the long-term viability and sustainability of our company.

Gifts can be made through bequests, life insurance, IRAs, or other planned giving arrangements, and may provide financial benefits to you as well. By arranging for a planned gift of any size or type, you translate your love of great theater into a legacy of support that will ensure Milwaukee Rep continues to delight and challenge audiences for generations to come.

The show must go on. Thanks to you, it will.

Residual Bequest Language

A residual bequest comes to us after your estate expenses and specific bequests are paid.

“I give and devise to Milwaukee Repertory Theater, located in Milwaukee, WI, all (or state a percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific affiliate, fund or program).”

Specific Bequest Language

Naming Milwaukee Repertory Theater as a beneficiary of a specific amount from your estate is easy.

“I give and devise to Milwaukee Repertory Theater, located in Milwaukee, WI., the sum of $___________ to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).”

Contingent Bequest Language

Milwaukee Repertory Theater can be named as a contingent beneficiary in your will or personal trust if one or more of your specific bequests cannot be fulfilled.

“If (insert name) is not living at the time of my demise, I give and devise to Milwaukee Repertory Theater, the sum of $ _______ (or all or a percentage of the residue of my estate) to be used for its general support (or for the support of a specific fund or program).”
