Planned Giving Options

Bequests
Creating a bequest is the simplest way to make a planned gift.  The language for bequests to the station should be directed to The Public Broadcasting Foundation of Northwest Ohio.

Gifts of Life Insurance
A gift of life insurance is another simple way to make a planned gift to the station by listing the station as the beneficiary. Life insurance gifts will allow the donor a tax deduction, does not impact donors immediate resources, and ensures support for the station after the donor passes.

Retirement Plans
By making a gift with a retirement plan your heirs will avoid a heavily taxed gift and you will be able to make a significant contribution to the station.  To make a gift through a retirement plan, you would list The Public Broadcasting Foundation of Northwest Ohio as the beneficiary.

Securities
When a donor makes a gift of securities, a donor will be able to avoid capital gains taxes while taking a tax deduction and greatly benefit the station. Gifts of securities are easy to make by working with your financial advisor and our station.

If you would like to explore any of the options further, please feel free to contact Lindsay Eberly at 419-380-4684 or planned_giving@wgte.org.
