For more than 25 years, WNCW has been a part of your community and life, providing value by giving knowledge, vision, and entertainment that you deserve. Planned Gifts make it possible to support this level of excellence in public radio for many generations to come.

Each donor's goal is unique. We appreciate any consideration of a planned gift and would like to provide you with additional information and education on planned giving to help you meet your goals. There are many options for your gift, from simple planned giving to life insurance based giving, so please explore your options by speaking to your lawyer, financial advisor and family. Contact Terri Frashier at terri@wncw.org or 828-395-1595 about your gift and for any other assistance we may be able to provide in completing the gift.

WNCW Gift Options

  • Legacy Society - Gifts of Bequest - A gift through your estate plan is an easy way for you to make a future gift. By including WNCW in your will and estate plan, you ensure the future of WNCW for the next generation. Join the Legacy Society. The WNCW Legacy Society is our way to recognize and thank those who have included a gift to WNCW in their estate plan. Legacy Society members enjoy Appreciation Events, our newsletter and special “thank-you” recognitions throughout the year.
  • Gifts of Stocks and Bonds - A gift of your securities, including your stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift. By making a gift of your appreciated securities, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
  • Gifts of Retirement Assets - A gift of your retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension or other tax deferred plan, is an excellent way to make a gift. By making a gift of your retirement assets, you will help further our work.
  • Gift of Insurance - A gift of your life insurance policy is an excellent way to make a gift to us. If your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors consider making a gift and help further our mission.
  • Gifts of Real Estate - A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax by making a gift to us.
  • Gifts of Cash - A gift of cash is a simple and easy way for you to make a gift. You will receive a charitable tax deduction that will provide you with savings on this year's tax return. Donate now and become a member of WNCW.
