How Legacy Gifts Are Used

Annual support from members, like you, keeps IPTV on the air from day-to-day and year-to-year. A gift through your will or living trust and other planned gifts go an important step further. They provide the foundation of IPTV long-term financial security, thus ensuring that public television will be enjoyed by generations to come. All planned gifts (including bequests, life income agreements, and gifts of retirement plans), unless otherwise assigned by the donor, are added to our board-designated endowment fund.

The fund is invested strategically to preserve its principal value. Income generated through the fund supports IPTV's programs and operations. As our fund grows, it will provide an ever-expanding source of stable funding to keep IPTV creative and strong.

IPTV prefers unrestricted gifts to the fund as they provide us with the most flexibility as to how your gift will some day by used. We do understand, though, that you may want your gift used in a specific way. IPTV wants to honor your wishes. Our planned giving staff would be pleased to work with you and your advisor(s) to meet your wishes and develop or review any bequest language you desire.
