Planned Giving

You already support WEKU with an annual gift, but you want to do more for your favorite station. You want to make a gift meant to last.

Planned gifts may be the appropriate answer for you and your family. There are many advantages to making a planned gift ranging from significant tax benefits to the emotional gratification of helping WEKU continue its mission as a cultural resource for generations to come.

The most common charitable bequest is including WEKU in your will. The primary financial benefit to this is that charitable bequests can reduce estate taxes. You may also choose to create an endowment or make a gift of life insurance, retirement plan assets, real estate, stocks, bonds or securities. A planned gift to WEKU can be designated as a specific bequest that reflects your personal wishes.
