Valhalla Society Member
When we asked Michael Bovre of Madison, Wisconsin, about his experiences with planned giving to Vesterheim, he replied, "It's just so easy." Michael is a long time, devoted friend of the museum and has been a member of Vesterheim's Valhalla Society since its inception more than a decade ago. He wants people to know planned giving is a "very worthwhile venture."
For many years, Michael has worked to raise awareness about the Norwegian immigrant story as an active member of Vesterheim, as well as President of the Koshkonong Historical Society. He encourages everyone to join the Valhalla Society whether they are a long-time supporter of Vesterheim or just making their first visit to the museum.
Please consider including Vesterheim in your own estate plans. Once Vesterheim is notified of your intention to make a planned gift, you will become a member of the museum's honored Valhalla Society. It is a great way to benefit Vesterheim, still meet your current income needs, and provide for any heirs.
For more information about planned giving, contact Steve Grinna, Director of Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 563-382-9681, ext.109.
