Legacy Society

The Legacy Society is comprised of donors who have pledged to support SO PBS in their estates through charitable bequests.

Charitable bequests are written into wills or trusts and direct a gift to be made to a qualified exempt charity when you pass away. This type of gift enables donors to further the good work of an organization, creating a lasting legacy.

Charitable bequests may also help save estate taxes by providing the estate with a charitable deduction for the value of the gift. Donors can choose to leave a percentage of their estates, a specific asset, or the remainder of their estates.

Sample Bequest Language (General Bequest):

"I give to Southern Oregon PBS, Inc. (Southern Oregon Public Television), whose current legal address is 28 S. Fir St., STE 200, Medford, OR, 97501, or its successor, the sum of $(or specifically describe property or percentage of estate or residual) to be used for its general charitable purposes as the Board of Directors of Southern Oregon PBS, Inc. shall determine."

Note: The IRS recognizes Southern Oregon PBS as a tax-deductible, 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. Our Tax Identification number is 93-066-9529.
