Will & Estate Gifts

Planned gifts are once-in-a-lifetime gifts, ultimately making a lasting, positive influence for Alaska Public Media radio, TV, and statewide news.

A legacy gift is a contribution made as part of your financial and/or estate planning, and can include gifts of equity, life insurance, real estate, personal property, cash, or other financial assets. When you make a legacy gift to Alaska Public Media, you secure our future and ensure that future generations of public radio listeners and public television viewers will be able to continue benefiting from our programs and services. By including Alaska Public Media in your estate plans, you are not only creating a personal legacy by supporting an organization you care about but also extending a gift to future generations.

Some of the advantages of legacy gifts include:

  • It costs nothing now, yet gives you the satisfaction of knowing you have provided for
    AKPM in the future
  • You retain control of and use of your assets during your lifetime
  • You may modify your gift if your circumstances change
  • Gifts to AKPM from your estate are exempt from federal estate taxes

There are many avenues for making these kinds of gifts, and many people find it helpful to read through an Estate Planning Guide, which you can request at the link below.
