Ella Post Legacy Society

In 1982, Ella Post, a Milwaukee-area Lutheran led by faith in her God and the conviction that the world needed Wisconsin Lutheran College, was prompted to place the ultimate confidence in the college. The college received a substantial portion of Ella Post Logo Ella's estate in 1984, so the mission to spread the good news of the gospel could be continued at Wisconsin Lutheran College well after the Lord called her to her eternal home.

The purpose of the Ella Post Legacy Society is to honor and recognize those friends and alumni who have included a legacy gift in their estate plans to benefit the college. These dedicated individuals are a reflection of Ella Post's early commitment to supporting the growth and development of Wisconsin Lutheran College. In doing so, these people recognize the college's unique role in fulfilling our Savior's divine commission to make disciples of all nations. As a thank you, members of the Ella Post Legacy Society are annually invited to a dinner and an event on campus.

Membership is extended to alumni, parents and friends who notify the college of their intention to benefit Wisconsin Lutheran College in their estate plan. Gift arrangements which qualify include:

  • Wills
  • Charitable trusts
  • Gifts of life insurance
  • Gift annuities
  • Retained life estates
  • Retirement plan beneficiary designations
  • Endowed funds
