Planned Giving

When you include KOSU in your will or estate plan, it is strong and lasting statement of what public broadcasting means to you. Your charitable bequest will provide legacy that will sustain the standards of public broadcasting in the communities KOSU serves across Oklahoma, and beyond.

Written into a will or trust, a charitable bequest directs a gift to be transferred to KOSU after you pass away. One benefit of a chartable bequest to KOSU is that it enables you to make a lasting impact on an organization that you value today and wish to be here for others to enjoy and benefit from in the future.

The KOSU Legacy Society recognizes donors who, in addition to their annual support, make a planned gift to KOSU through a variety of options including donating a portion of their estate, naming KOSU a beneficiary of their retirement account or life insurance policy, or establishing a charitable remainder or lead trust. Legacy Society members help to ensure that KOSU remains a strong voice in Oklahoma for years to come. KOSU Legacy Society members receive invitations to special events throughout the year and recognition in the annual report.

Leaving a bequest is easy. Your financial advisor can help you include language in your will or trust for gifts to family, friends or a charity, like KOSU, as part of your estate plan.
