Wickham Park is a non-profit, private foundation whose property extends into both Manchester and East Hartford, Connecticut. The park contains 280 acres of gardens, open fields, woodlands, ponds, picnic areas, sports facilities, and other attractions.
All donations, no matter how modest, will help Wickham Park maintain and improve its facilities. The park hopes that you will consider donating annually to support park activities each year.
Your gift will be used in a variety of ways:

PLANNED GIFTS AND BEQUESTS
You do not need a fortune to give a lasting gift to Wickham Park. Planned gifts, both large and small, play an important role in ensuring the future of Wickham Park. Invested over time, any size gift can have a significant impact. Planned gifts tailored to an individual’s unique circumstances have become increasingly important because they provide long-term support to Wickham Park, while saving donors surprising amounts in estate, gift, and income taxes.
Wickham Park can also be named as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. Bequests in a will are the simplest and most straightforward mechanism for leaving a gift where the need is greatest. They can also be earmarked for special purposes. If you are considering restricting your gift, however, we would appreciate the opportunity to discuss your ideas before you finalize your gift. The information provided here is not intended to be tax or legal advice. Please contact a qualified financial advisor before making your gift.
All donors will receive a yearly newsletter highlighting important Park events and developments. The name/s of those providing funding to the park will also be published within this newsletter (unless, of course, the donation is given anonymously).
