KCRW appreciates forward-thinking donors interested in making charitable gifts to the station through their will or estate-plans. These planned or deferred gifts often include cash, stock, insurance or real estate and play a significant part in preserving KCRW's future.
Ways To Make a Planned Gift
Make a bequest in your will or trust by including wording such as: "I hereby give to KCRW, a not-for-profit organization with offices at 1900 Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90405, the sum of $_______; or _______% of the residue of my estate." KCRW considers gifts of real estate, securities, and tangible property that might be used by the station in addition to cash assets.
IRA or retirement plan beneficiary
Life insurance beneficiary
Charitable IRA Distribution
Congress passed a tax bill that permanently extends the Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) provision, allowing you to transfer up to $100,000 when you turn 70½ from your IRA to a charity and have it count as your required minimum distribution without increasing your adjusted gross income.
