A simple way to make a legacy gift to Texas Public Radio is by designating it as either a full, partial or contingent beneficiary of a retirement plan, insurance policy or savings account. Making a gift through the beneficiary designation form, rather than through a will, may provide significant tax benefits and also allow the gift to bypass the probate process.
Some common designation options include retirement plans (e.g., traditional IRA, Keogh, 401(k)), life insurance policies and savings accounts.
Most beneficiary designation forms will require the federal taxpayer identification number for Texas Public Radio, which is 74-2559514. We are happy to talk with you and your plan or policy administrator or other advisors if you are considering designating Texas Public Radio as a beneficiary.
