Thinking about the future is something we all share. By preparing an estate plan you're safe guarding more than just matters of finances and inheritance. You’re also guiding future health decisions, providing for loved ones and creating your legacy. Estate plans help you protect what matters most. Now, is the perfect time to put your mind at ease, by planning your future today!!

How to Get Started 

There are many types of planned giving options. You can explore them here. By including WCMU in your estate plans, you can help ensure we can entertain, inspire, and educate people in Central and Northern Michigan for generations to come, and make our work a lasting part of your legacy.

How Will You Use My Gift? 

We highly encourage any donors who have included WCMU in their estate plans to fill out a letter of intent and return it to our office. The form truly is simple and having it completed is the best way to ensure we use your gift in the way you intend for it to be used. It allows us to stay organized, but by no means is a binding contract. Additionally, we’d welcome any documentation you’d also like to share with us. For example, the page from your estate plans that specifically mentions WCMU.

WCMU Public Media does not provide any legal or tax advice. All ideas presented should be discussed with your accountant, attorney, or other independent professional advisor.
