Richard 'Dick' Wilhelm

Richard 'Dick' Wilhelm

Richard 'Dick' Wilhelm, 94, from Muskegon, Michigan has been a generous donor to American Printing House for the Blind since 1996. In 2002, he decided to establish his first Charitable Gift Annuity with APH.

"My wife of beloved memory, Dorothy, was suffering from advancing macular degeneration and I thought it would be a good endeavor to help along those suffering from eye diseases." His decision to invest with APH was two-fold; a financial benefit for himself and APH.

In exchange for creating a CGA, Dick receives quarterly fixed payments for life and enjoyed a generous charitable tax deduction in the year he made his gift. A portion of each payment he receives is also free of income tax for a period of time.
