Why Remember Warren Wilson College
with a Planned Gift?

Making an impression is one thing. Making it last is another. Warren Wilson depends on tuition payments and annual giving for its yearly operations—but true, sustained impact comes from the vision of donors who make planned gifts through estates, annuities, trusts, retirement assets or insurance. Their vision and commitment give Warren Wilson the ability to build for the future while supporting the present, thereby ensuring that our lasting impression endures, now and for generations to come.
