Misson Statement

The WNED Foundation exists to benefit and enhance the high quality programming and services provided by the Western New York Public Broadcasting Association. Thus, benefactors are essential in helping us to enlighten, inspire, entertain and educate people of all ages and backgrounds throughout Western New York and Southern Ontario.

The WNED Foundation honors all of our friends and members who plan for WNED’s future with a gift by will, living trust, charitable trust, life insurance policy or retirement account, or retained life estate.

Foundation gifts assure support of WNED in your memory for many, many years to come. Entrusted to our Foundation, these gifts become part of a permanent funding source 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 WNED.

This site was created to provide you with information about the WNED Foundation to help you in creating an estate plan that best benefits you, your family, and the power of public broadcasting.
