Become a Visionary – Remember WEDU in your will
WEDU Visionaries is a group of donors who plan to leave a gift in their estate to WEDU, whether through their will or another way. WEDU Visionaries are honored with special benefits including complimentary program guides and invitations to special events and donor appreciation events. With their permission, WEDU Visionaries are listed annually in WEDU Premiere, our monthly membership magazine.
Gifts in any amount are valued by WEDU. Upon receipt, bequests are placed into the WEDU Endowment where they protect broadcasting without compromise and ensure the programming you enjoy continues to be available for loved ones, neighbors and the community you care about.
To include WEDU in your will, the following suggested language will be of interest to your attorney and provides suitable information.
“I give and bequeath to Florida West Coast Public Broadcasting (WEDU), Tax ID # 59-0840626, a charitable organization located at 1300 North Boulevard, Tampa, Florida 33607, ($_____, or _____% of my estate, or my residual estate).”
For more information about how you can become a WEDU Visionary, call our Development department at 813-739-2959 or email@example.com.
IRA Charitable Rollover and Satisfying your RMD
IRA Charitable Rollover is a way for individuals who have reached age 70½ to donate up to $100,000 to WEDU directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income. Giving from your IRA is a great way to satisfy your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) tax-free and support WEDU’s mission to serve the public good and to aid in the creation of an informed citizenry.
Though the new SECURE Act does increase the minimum age to take your required minimum distribution (RMD) from 70½ to 72 years old, you can still make tax-free contribution to WEDU PBS from your IRA starting at 70½.
It is easy to make a contribution to WEDU from your IRA. Simply instruct your plan administrator to send a specific dollar amount directly to WEDU. Your administrator can send your gift by check or electronic transfer. Please let us know of your charitable intentions so we can ensure your gift is processed in an accurate and timely manner.
However you choose to give, WEDU thanks you for your support. Please let us know how we can better serve you.
