Forever Connected

At NPR, we don't use the word legacy loosely.

Are you considering including a gift to your local Member station and/or NPR in your estate planning?

Contact your local Member station for information about a planned gift to support the regional programming you love.

To make a planned gift to NPR, please contact our office at 202-513-2097 or email giftplanning@npr.org with any questions.

To us, the word legacy embodies the passion and dedication of people who have named NPR or NPR and their Member station in their wills or estates. This is a special group of visionary friends whose foresight and support—at any giving level—will help NPR and Member stations continue our mission for generations to come. Gifts vary in size and scope but all serve a common purpose: to realize today the ability to positively impact the future success of public radio.

Get Help with Your Estate Planning

Some donors elect to ensure the vitality of NPR and their Member station far into the future by including them in their estate planning. These donors make a valuable contribution to supporting the mission of NPR and our Member stations while taking advantage of federal and state tax laws that may allow reduction of income taxes, lower gift and estate taxes, or provide income during the donor's lifetime.

To find out how you can include a gift to your Member station in your estate planning, please search for your station here and contact their development office for more information. If you are considering including a gift to NPR in your estate planning, please consult your financial adviser or contact our office at 202-513-2097 or email giftplanning@npr.org with any questions.

SUPPORT PUBLIC RADIO CLOSE TO HOME

Contact your local Member station for information about a planned gift to support the regional programming you love.

Gift Designation

If you are considering including a gift to NPR in your estate planning, please consult your financial adviser or contact our office at 202-513-2097 or email giftplanning@npr.org with any questions.

Monies generated through estate and deferred gifts enable NPR and Member stations to continue to provide listeners with the level of programming excellence—on-air and online—they have come to expect. All deferred gifts, unless specifically designated otherwise by the donor, will be used for NPR general operating activities.

Recognition

Members of the NPR Legacy Society are enthusiastic supporters who make their mark on the future of public media by including NPR or NPR and a Member station in their estate plans. We recognize and celebrate all members of the Legacy Society, without whom we could not continue this important work. Members of the Legacy Society receive periodic communications from NPR on current events and new programs; they are invited to NPR events; and they are celebrated through a variety of other types of recognition.

If you are considering including a gift to NPR in your estate planning, please consult your financial adviser or contact our office at 202-513-2097 or email giftplanning@npr.org with any questions.
