Check out this potential scenario
Jim and Nancy Nestler made the Walla Walla Valley their home after they fell in love with the family atmosphere at Walla Walla University when they were students. Jim is now a professor in the WWU biology department, a position that allows him to direct the academic program at the university’s Rosario Beach Marine Laboratory on the beautiful Rosario Strait near Anacortes, Wash.
“The Rosario campus, the Rosario experience in general, is an amplification of what I love most about WWU, that is, the family atmosphere,” said Jim. “Rosario helped me find my place here. I want others to have the same opportunity to learn and grow here.”
With a desire to continue supporting the program at Rosario after they are gone, the Nestler’s chose to make a legacy gift to the university. “We believe in the mission of WWU,” say the Nestlers. “We wish we could do more, but every gift is important.”
The Nestlers emphasize that it is important to follow your heart when choosing to make a financial gift, and with this type of gift to the university they promise you will never look back and regret your decision.
