WGCU Public Media has been providing Southwest Florida with the finest in public television and radio programming for 35 years. This important work has been made possible through the years because of loyal members and supporters like you. You can continue making your area a better place to live, learn and grow by establishing a planned gift to support the future of WGCU.

Leaving your legacy

Whether you want to sustain the award-winning programs that you love or shape the future of public media, your planned gift of any amount will help ensure WGCU’s ability to create and deliver rich programming for the Southwest Florida community to enjoy for years to come.

Before you make your gift:

Charitable gifts should be considered carefully. We recommend that you consult an attorney, financial advisor or estate-planning expert in preparing your will or trust and your charitable planning. WGCU cannot provide legal or tax advice.

A number of planned giving programs are available and we encourage you to explore your options. Some planned gifts may offer tax benefits, income for you or your family or estate planning advantages, all while supporting WGCU’s mission. We will work closely, and confidentially, with you and your advisors.


* Notify us of your intention to make a bequest to WGCU. One way to provide notice is by completing this form: Confirmation of Legacy Gift.

* Establish a charitable gift annuity or another type of life income gift with WGCU.

* Make an outright gift of $25,000 or more to create an endowment for sustainable support of WGCU. Visit our Fund our Future page to learn more about funding opportunities that match the goals for your legacy.
