Bequest in Your Will

Many viewers have provided for KLRU in their wills and, for most of them, it is the largest gift to KLRU they could ever consider. As you review the various deferred gifts discussed on our web site, please keep in mind that one of the simplest ways for you to perpetuate the kind of programming you value so highly is through your will.

You Can Decide
You have choices as to how you name KLRU as a beneficiary in your will. Whichever you select, it is important that your attorney know that bequests should be made to Capital of Texas Public Telecommunications Council, Inc., P.O. Box 7158, Austin, Texas 78713. Our federal tax id number 75-7126012.

  • One possibility is a bequest of a fixed dollar amount. Another is to give KLRU a percentage of the estate. Finally, many people prefer to designate KLRU to receive the residuary estate, or a portion of it.
  • Bequests are the way many viewers create endowed funds. If you do decide to restrict your bequest, we ask that you include the following language in your will:

    “If at any time, in the judgment of the Board of Directors of Capital of Texas Public Telecommunications Council, Inc. it is no longer practicable to use the income or principal of this bequest for the purpose stated herein, I authorize them to use the income or principal for any purpose they deem to be consistent with such purpose.”

Please Let Us Know
If you’re planning to make KLRU one of your beneficiaries, we encourage you to tell us now. We can work with you and your advisors to make sure the bequest is planned and administered properly. It also gives us the opportunity to thank you and to welcome you as a member of the Legacy Society. Requests for anonymity are respected.
