Dues Statement Donations
▶ Why is it important for me to make a donation to the Wisconsin Dental Association Foundation on my dues statement? Is it tax-deductible?
Each donation made on a WDA dues statement is unrestricted and creates a financial base for the foundation; allowing for efficient management and effective use of funds.
It also impacts the foundation’s ability to provide grants to nonprofit dental programs and scholarships to dental and dental hygiene students. The WDA Foundation is a qualified
501(c)(3) charitable organization and every donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
▶ There is a suggested donation of $60. Can I make a smaller or larger donation with my dues statement?
Absolutely. The $60 donation is simply a suggestion. Most WDA members who make a donation on their dues statement give the suggested donation, because it is a simple way to show support. When opting for the six installments payment plan, your donation is broken down to just $10 per month making it affordable for almost everyone.
If your budget allows for a larger donation or you would like to show support, but $60 is not practical for you, you may indicate a different donation amount on your dues statement and adjust your payment accordingly.
The simplest form of planned giving is to include a provision in your will naming the charity to a share of your assets. This is known as a bequest. You also can name a charity as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy, pension plan, 401(k) or IRA. A planned gift can be a set dollar amount or a percentage of your assets after your family has been provided for.
You can become a member by first working with your attorney or accountant to include the WDA Foundation in your estate. When that has been completed, simply complete the Legacy Society Letter of Intent and return it to the foundation. The Letter of Intent is not a binding contract, but rather a means of informing the foundation of your actions. When a completed letter is received, you will be named as a Legacy Society member. Your name will be listed as such in future Donor Honor Rolls and you will receive a small token of appreciation that signifies your commitment to the future of dentistry.
