Giving a bequest, annuity or any other planned gift will ensure Wellspring can live on in the future, supporting the lives of women and children in Oak Park beyond your lifetime.

Wellspring Women's Center makes it our mission to provide respite services partnered by hospitality, with dignity and love. Starting as a grassroots organization in 1987, our founders had a vision to create a permanent place where every women and child could come, regardless of their circumstances, and be a part of a welcoming community. Over 32 years later, and their vision is still being realized every weekday. 

By becoming a Legacy Donor, you can ensure that their vision continues to live on for many years to come. By thinking of us when planning your estate, you are providing a bright future for many far beyond your lifetime. 

You don't need to be a certain age or have a certain income to include us in your estate plan. Planned giving is for anyone and everyone! It's a goal anyone can make and achieve as gifts come in all forms and amounts.

You are welcome to designate where you would like your gift to go - Nutritious Meal Program, Women's Wellness Program, Children's Corner, Safety Net Services - or designate your gift for the general benefit of Wellspring. By becoming a Legacy Donor, you are setting an intention with your philanthropy, and we want your vision to come to life wherever best fits your goals!
