Leave a Legacy

WUCF offers many options to further your financial goals and shape the station’s future for generations to come. Explore ways to make a gift from your will, trust, life insurance, or retirement plan.

Wills & Trusts

Many supporters leave a gift to WUCF in their wills or trusts to ensure programs they love will continue to bring joy and learning to future generations.

Life Insurance Policies

Naming WUCF as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy could save on estate taxes.

Retirement Plans

Because of the way taxes are applied to retirement plan assets, by naming WUCF as a full or partial beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), or other qualified retirement plans, you might be able to eliminate both income and estate taxes.
