Legacy Society


The WNED|WBFO Legacy Society was established to honor friends and members who have planned for WNED|WBFO’s future through a bequest intention or other planned gift.

All legacy gifts are entrusted to THE WNED FOUNDATION and invested and managed professionally.  Each year, the board of trustees of the foundation, appropriates a portion of the investment portfolio’s earnings to WNED|WBFO’s ongoing operations.

By informing WNED|WBFO of your intent to make a legacy gift, you will join the growing list of these vital supporters.





An area in WNED|WBFO’s main corridor has been designated for the WNED|WBFO Legacy member’s recognition.

All donors who have advised WNED|WBFO of their legacy intention (regardless of size) and who have completed the WNED|WBFO Legacy Society enrollment form are added to the legacy wall.

Additional recognition naming opportunities are considered on a case by case basis.
