Richard H. Wolcott (CLE '50) is many things: a veteran of the U.S. Navy, a retiree from a 40-year career at the Kellogg Company and a passionate devotee of the theater.
It is this love of theater that has inspired his long philanthropic relationship with Case Western Reserve University. In addition to sustained leadership giving to the College of Arts and Sciences Annual Fund, yearly contributions to the Friends of Eldred Theater and costume donations, Wolcott has partnered with the university to make a series of creative gifts through planned giving vehicles.
He created a charitable remainder annuity trust that generates income each year to supplement his retirement and has established a substantial will commitment to benefit the Department of Theater and Dance well into the future.
Though these commitments have provided many tax, retirement and estate- planning benefits to Wolcott, it is his love for the stage that inspires his philanthropy.
Whatever the reason for a gift, the university is profoundly grateful for the support of our alumni and friends.
