“Donating to KGNU brightens my day. I will donate even when I’m gone by including KGNU in my will, which I hope will brighten many days ahead for our amazing community radio station.”

– David Wilson (former KGNU Station Manager)

 

Will or Estate Plans

A meaningful way to ensure that future generations have access to independent, community-powered media is to make a gift to KGNU in your will or estate plan. By leaving KGNU a financial gift you will be helping KGNU fulfill its mission to stimulate, educate, and entertain our audience, AND give voice and microphone to marginalized and underrepresented groups for decades to come, along the Front Range and far beyond.

FIRST, know that KGNU is committed to donor privacy.

SECOND, leaving a gift by Will or Trust is easy!

  • Name Boulder Community Broadcast Association, Inc., d/b/a KGNU in your will as a beneficiary of your specific bequest.
  • These gifts may have tax implications. Consult an attorney or CPA to be sure.
  • Please share this suggested wording with your attorney or advisor: “I, [name], of [city, state, zip], give, devise and bequeath to Boulder Community Broadcast Association, Inc., d/b/a KGNU, [written amount ($) or percentage (%) of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

THIRD, making a current gift of a percentage share of your IRA, 401 (k) or other retirement account is even easier and does not require an attorney. Simple request a beneficiary designation request a beneficiary designation form from your retirement account custodian and leave KGNU whatever percentage share or dollar amount you wish.
