Planned gifts are once-in-a-lifetime gifts, ultimately making a lasting, positive influence for KSKA 91.1 FM public radio and KAKM public television. If you are already a member of Alaska Public Media, a planned gift – a bequest from your will or trust, or naming AKPM the recipient of a life insurance policy or retirement fund – may be your next step in providing for Alaska Public Media’s growth.
Your legacy plan can be made with consideration of both your family’s financial needs and your personal charitable goals. A gift in your will or trust, called a bequest, is flexible, convenient and simple to complete. You can donate a specified sum of money, a percentage of the remainder of your estate, or a particular property—and because you are not making a gift until after your lifetime, you can change your mind at any time. Another option is to name Alaska Public Media as the recipient of a life insurance policy or retirement fund. In turn, Alaska Public Media will be able to use your gift to help secure the future of Alaska Public Media and ensure that future generations of public radio listeners and public television viewers are able to continue benefiting from our programs and services.
Remember, by including Alaska Public Media in your estate plans, you are not only creating a personal legacy by supporting an organization you care deeply about, but also extending a gift to future generations.
If you notify Alaska Public Media with your intent to support the station with a planned gift, you will become a member of the Alaska Public Media Alfred Hanisch Legacy Society. If you have already included the station in your estate plans, please let us know. We would appreciate the opportunity to thank you for your generosity and to help make sure your intentions are carried out in the way you wish.
