Establishing Foundation Membership
  • The Wilson Family Reunion members are committed
    to offering assistance to the continuation of the
    Wilson Reunion and are interested in you becoming
    a Foundation Member. We realize that the Wilson
    Family Members have a genuine purpose and are
    among the reunions greatest resources.
    Foundation Members play a unique role in Wilson
    Family Reunion recruitment, financial support,
    promoting the Wilson Members to the public and
    perpetuating the legacy and mission of the Wilson
    Family Reunion. Thus, it is imperative that we
    keep our reunion functioning vitally.
  • Wilson Foundation members are asked to pay dues
    of 50.00 annually for 2 years. This financial
    contribution supports the administration
    (correspondence mail-out, phone calls etc.),
    senior citizens (defrays some of the cost of the
    reunion), education (scholarship) and hospitality
    (cards and bereavement arrangements) for our
    Wilson Foundation Members.
  • I (your name), agree to pay 50.00 a year for 2
    years to become a Wilson Family Foundation
    Member.
