Giving Through Wills and Trusts
By far the most common means of making a charitable planned gift to UNC-TV is through a bequest in your will or living trust. These estate-planning tools, when carefully prepared by your attorney, allow you to retain full use of your assets during your lifetime and still make a significant gift to UNC-TV.
Frances Bavier, better known as Aunt Bee, provided for UNC-TV through a bequest. Frances’s many cats were well provided for, but they could not use her Emmy Award for "The Andy Griffith Show," so she willed it to UNC-TV along with the remainder of her estate. This generous gift contributed more than $344,000 to the UNC-TV endowment fund and is still giving to North Carolinians today.
You, too, can make an important contribution that will help provide a stable future for public television in North Carolina and at the same time provide tax relief for you and your estate.
