Planned Giving - WNIT

A smart approach to sharing your personal values.

Gwen Ifill (1955-2016), PBS NewsHour and Washington Week

Giving Retirement Assets

Did you know that retirement plans and accounts funded with pre-tax earnings are often subject both to income and estate taxes when children or others are named as your beneficiaries?

By naming Michiana Public Broadcasting Corporation / WNIT as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) and/or 403(b), you will be assured that every dollar will be used for a charitable purpose (like educational programming for kids) and shielded from income or estate taxes. In addition, this option avoids the possible delays and various costs associated with probate administration. By making a gift of your retirement benefits to the station, your charitable wishes can be fulfilled with greater ease and efficiency.
