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.

    

 

 

Recognition

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.

Major Donors

WNED operates with the support of our members, who are truly the backbone of the organization. They provide many of the resources needed to cover basic expenses -- everything from our electric bill to our PBS dues.

Although a membership costs as little as $35, some members have the capability and interest to do more for public broadcasting in Western New York and Southern Ontario. Donors who make an annual contribution of at least $300 provide the support WNED needs to go beyond day-to-day operations and plan for the future. These members are enrolled in one of the following Major Giving Clubs:

Founder’s Society $300 - $999

Leadership Circle $1,000 -$4,999

President’s Council $5,000 and up

Members who give at these levels also receive special benefits. They are often invited to events that offer an insider’s view of upcoming programs, opportunities to meet public broadcasting personalities and much more!

For a contribution of $300 or more, you can join a growing list of leaders who make a significant difference. Your gift will help WNED produce, acquire and broadcast programs that enrich you personally as well as our entire community.

For more information about becoming a member of a WNED Major Giving Club, contact:
