Making a Gift From Your Will or Trust
A charitable gift is one of the most meaningful legacies you can provide for your favorite organization and can be an effective way to make a significant contribution that might not otherwise be possible.
Some donors designate specific gifts to family members and residual amounts to charities. In other situations, the reverse is more appropriate.
Typically donors make gifts to KUOW by:
- specifying a percentage of their estate
- naming a specific dollar amount or
- giving the residue of their estate to KUOW
Here is an example of wording to share with your estate planning attorney:
I leave to KUOW [the residue and remainder of my estate or a specific dollar amount or percentage] whose legal name is KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio and whose IRS Tax ID number is 91–2079402.
