Wills and Trusts




Keeping the promise of public media to our next generation.

Wills and Trusts

Making a gift in your will or revocable living trust is a meaningful way to ensure the promise of public media is kept to future generations in Western New York and Southern Ontario.

Naming WNED | WBFO as a beneficiary in your will or living trust can be done at any time. You can add a charitable provision to an existing document or express your charitable wishes in a new one.

Here are some ideas on how to make a gift to the station in your will or living trust:
 

  • You can give a specific dollar amount or property item,

  • You can give a percentage of your asset(s),

  • You can give all or a portion of what remains after gifts to other beneficiaries such as your family and friends have been made, or

  • Your gift can be contingent upon special circumstances or events.
