Planning for Future Generations
South Florida PBS’ members generously provide annual dollars for current programming and educational needs. However, to be fiscally responsible and to sustain WPBT and WXEL’s combined 100 years of trusted, award winning content for toddlers to the young at heart, we must continue to grow our endowment savings.
WHO: Our Legacy Society Members – endowment donors:
- Expand South Florida PBS’ ability to spontaneously address and fund unexpected opportunities to educate, inspire and inform our viewers.
- Provide for unexpected emergencies or economic hardships.
- Fund emerging technological upgrades.
- Ensure South Florida PBS’ long-term impact through the establishment, over time, of a substantial endowment.
WHAT: To join this vital group, please consider documenting a planned gift of at least $100,000 or making a current gift of at least $100,000 to the South Florida PBS endowment.
WHEN: Your investment in our South Florida PBS endowment is always welcomed and appreciated.
WHY: For our community, it is critical that our public television station, America’s most trusted public media company, has the means and savings to remain strong, responsive and independent for the future. When you join the Legacy Society, you make it possible for South Florida PBS to sustain our robust, energized, forward-focused non-profit public media station.
HOW: Perhaps one of the simplest ways to become a Legacy Society member is an outright gift to South Florida PBS in a donor’s will or revocable trust. When such a gift is made by will, it is called a ‘devise’ or ‘bequest’. Language to implement a gift of say $250,000* might read:
‘I devise the sum of $250,000 to South Florida PBS.’
(one might otherwise bequeath another amount or a portion of their estate)
A charitable bequest is just one of many planned giving arrangements you can use to benefit South Florida PBS. Moreover, we urge you to consult with your financial planner or estate attorney for more ideas and guidance.
For more information on becoming a Legacy Society member or letting us know you have made a provision for South Florida PBS in your estate plans, please call 1-877-272-7867 or email email@example.com
*Gifts of $250,000 or more may provide for a permanent named endowed fund.
Thank You for supporting our South Florida PBS!
