Creating a planned gift makes you a member of the WNED Foundation, 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.

As a WNED Foundation member, your name will be memorialized on a prominent, permanent plaque in the lobby of our Horizons Plaza broadcast headquarters. We welcome you as a special guest at WNED by-invitation-only events. Anonymity is always an option. Alternately, you may elect to memorialize, and pay tribute, to another with your WNED endowment gift.

Foundation gifts assure long term WNED membership in your memory. 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 WNED.

Most importantly, you will have planned wisely and invested in a 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.
