Bequests and other Planned Gifts

Broadcast personalityPublic broadcasting fills a void in that it offers great family programming in order to deepen curiosity and encourage further exploration and personal growth. The following pages will offer ideas as to how you can be a part, truly a partner, in the shaping, developing and encouragement of that type of broadcasting content through your gifts and support of WFSU. Your rewards will be more than quality programming and more than the tax savings that are a result of your gift. You will also experience the personal and emotional rewards of helping to insure the future of quality public broadcasting.

There are as many different ways to support WFSU as there are needs for your support. Planning a gift is more than just finding a need. There are a lot of factors to consider.

If planned giving is a new thought, you might want to take a moment to consider some of the factors. Another reference tool for your use is our chart briefly describing some of the charitable means that are available to you - see How Can I...?

The following stories share some of the different ways people can become partners with us in providing quality programming. Take a moment to see how people - perhaps in circumstances similar to yours - have found ways to support  causes that are important to them - the way WFSU is important to you.
