Susi's Station Notes: Shorter Pledge Campaigns!

Susi Elkins, WKAR TV station manager

You may have noticed that WKAR's fundraising campaign began on Thursday. We're trying something new this year. Instead of having our regular 16-day campaigns four times a year, we are hoping to have those events go only eleven days.

You might say, "Don't you need the money?" and the answer is "Yes! We do!" Our goal is to do a better job of reaching out to more WKAR viewers with the opportunity to become WKAR supporters -- making WKAR and public broadcasting stronger in our community.

Leadership Giving - Trusts

Are you looking for new ways to protect your family and your money?

Would you like to cut estate taxes and probate costs, too?

Would you like to remember WKAR in your estate plans?

A personal trust may be the answer for you. It can be the ideal solution when you would like to make a gift to WKAR, but first must satisfy your own family's financial needs.

Personal trusts let you have it both ways -- passing assets to your heirs with the least amount of tax, while making a future gift to WKAR.
