Vision statement

Galesburg teachers continued to picket today, while their students stayed at home. The union and school board met with a federal mediator for four hours Sunday, but couldn't reach agreement to end the strike.

Making a Bequest to WVIK

Jan 1, 1970

For many members, listeners and other friends, the decision to remember WVIK with the gift of a bequest is a natural extension of their commitment for WVIK.

Bequests are commitments of a future contribution and can be made while drafting a will or formulating an estate plan at any time, regardless of the age of the donor.

We work with donors to blend their vision with WVIK's priorities to create a designation that is mutually satisfying and beneficial. The language used in a bequest is crucial to ensuring the achievement of donors' goals.
