Getting Started

Creating a planned gift makes you a member of the Buffalo Toronto Public Media Legacy Society, a group of visionary friends and benefactors whose generosity will endow and sustain public broadcasting in Western New York for many, many decades to come.

When you make a legacy donation to the WNED Foundation, your name is memorialized on a prominent, permanent plaque at our Horizons Plaza broadcast headquarters. Anonymity is always an option. Alternately, you may elect to memorialize, and pay tribute, to another with your endowment gift to the WNED Foundation. You also will receive invitations to Buffalo Toronto Public Media exclusive events throughout the year.

Foundation gifts provide Buffalo Toronto Public Media with long-term stability, presented as a memorial to you or your loved ones . Entrusted to our Foundation, these investments become part of an endowment specifically designed to ensure that public broadcasting will enlighten, inspire, educate, and entertain future generations with the equity and quality you have come to love from BTPM.

Most importantly, you will have planned wisely and invested in a treasured community asset that has the ability to reach far and wide in ways that truly matter. Advantageous tax savings benefit you and your inheritors when charitable giving plays a role in long-term estate planning.
