Many people think that planned giving is a difficult process and only something that wealthy people can do. In reality, planned giving is easy to do and a great opportunity to leave a legacy for future generations. Planned giving, or gift planning, enables individuals to make larger gifts to nonprofits and charities than they normally could make from their income. Depending on the type of gift chosen, an individual may enjoy tax benefits, secure a lifetime income stream and provide additional income for heirs. These gifts, while planned now, help ensure that the voice of WERU Community Radio will be alive and well for years to come.
There are a number of ways you can support the future of WERU with a planned gift:
- Bequest in Your Will
- Stock Gift
- Life Insurance Policy Gift
- Retirement Account Beneficiary Designation
- Charitable Remainder Trust
- Charitable Gift Annuity
Please consult your attorney or estate specialist when making planned giving decisions.
WERU is a not-for-profit corporation that is recognized as exempt from tax under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Our Federal Tax Identification number is 22-2513428.
