When you make your contribution, consider Monthly Giving. By joining our community of monthly donors you become a vital partner in public broadcasting. Monthly contributions provide us with a stable source of income essential to our mission to provide programming and services that enlighten, inspire, entertain and educate.
As a monthly giver, your contributions automatically come from your bank account or from your debit or credit card. It makes supporting public broadcasting so easy. Your membership will always be current. You won't receive renewal reminders in the mail. And you won't have to remember to write another check/cheque - all while providing reliable funding for the programs you love. Monthly Giving is easy for you, and great for WNED|WBFO!
To start your monthly contribution, choose "ongoing Monthly Giving" as your payment option on our secure donation forms. To change your existing monthly contribution, please contact Membership.
Monthly contributions start at just $5.00 per month. Your monthly gift will be automatically deducted from your bank account or credit card each month until you tell us to stop. An annual statement will be provided in late January for tax purposes.
Giving stock is a great way to support WNED|WBFO! Using appreciated stock or mutual funds is a tax-wise way to fund your gift to public broadcasting.
First, you avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. Second, you receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift. Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent vehicle for stock that has appreciated substantially in value.Your gift of stock also brings with it WNED|WBFO membership, with benefit levels corresponding to the amount of the gift.
How to give stockTo avoid exposure to capital gains tax, the stock must be transferred to WNED|WBFO. We then sell the stock from our account. Stockbrokers require delivery instructions in writing. To make a stock gift to WNED|WBFO, contact Colleen Miller, Director of Major and Planned Giving, (716) 845-7031 or
Mutual FundsIf you are transferring a Mutual Fund Asset, please contact Colleen Miller, Director of Major and Planned Giving, (716) 845-7031 or
Legacy GiftsStock and mutual funds may also be used to fund charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts. Please complete our Legacy Society Request for Information.
