Al established a trust led by four Directors before his death. He named Sharon Kocher, Stuart Dole, Tom Brown and George Kocher as Trustees. They have carried on his wisdom and objectives long after he passed away due to their personal devotion to him as a person and a mentor.
There has been a major change in this Trust recently. All of these Trustees are elderly and have health and family challenges such that they have turned over the last of the Wilson Trust Funds such that it can be characterized as closed.
Its main objectives, however, remain the same and are now just to be carried on by the Southern Office, the Claremont Office, the ISSP-IBO, and simultaneously the Omega2 Office. They hope to continue the searches and enquiries that characterized Al’s life into perpetuity, as well as curate, interpret, and disseminate his numerous insights and wisdom. This website is one of their methods. Please feel free to donate to the Wilson Endowment so we can guarantee its continuance into perpetuity.
The trust manages his voluminous library (5,000+ books) and notes (five file cabinets; 22 file drawers; 108 notebooks; 184 manilla envelopes; an estimated 16,770 double-sided 3×5 card cursive notes; and more).
These are the goals and objectives of the Wilson Trust. Fundamentally, they are to fulfill the purposes expressed by Al in his will establishing the Trust. The Trustee’s analysis concludes these are:
- THE WIDEST POSSIBLE RANGE OF TOPICS
- ENVISION ALTERNATIVES
- CHALLENGE ASSUMPTIONS
- IDENTIFY, PROTECT, RESTRUCTURE OR DISMANTLE BELIEFS AND BEHAVIORS TO SERVE HUMANITY
- CONSTANTLY REINTEGRATE
- ALIGN HUMANITIES PATTERNS WITH COSMIC PATTERNS
Ever the student, Al over his long life of 94 years, continually collected, read, analyzed and curated a huge library on as many topics as the diversity indicated by the topics on this website.
