Legacy and Planned Giving

Legacy Society

The Legacy Society was established to recognize, honor, and celebrate extraordinary individuals who remember PBS Charlotte in their estate or financial plans. Their visionary commitment will build public television’s future on our legacy of quality, innovation, and service to the Charlotte community.

How do I become a Legacy Society member?

Informing us that you have included WTVI Foundation, Inc in your estate plans automatically qualifies you as a member of our Legacy Society.

To join, simply name WTVI Foundation, Inc. as a beneficiary of your planned gift and let us know by filling out our confidential Statement of Intent. Sharing appropriate information of revocable gifts does not imply a binding agreement. It does, however, allow PBS Charlotte to best understand your intentions, and to show our appreciation during your lifetime. Gifts of any size are graciously appreciated, and you may remain anonymous if you so choose.

See the many ways you can make a planned gift. If you’re ready to join the Legacy Society, consider using this free resource. As a result of our partnership with FreeWill, this tool will guide you through creating an estate plan at no personal cost and will help you include the necessary language to support PBS Charlotte with a legacy gift. Get started here.
