Gifts Made Through Wills - "Bequests"
When writing or updating your will, you can also make a real difference in the continuation of intelligent, independent non-commercial radio by naming Texas Public Radio as a beneficiary.
There are several ways to structure a bequest:
• Unrestricted Bequests: Allows Texas Public Radio to direct your gift where it is needed the most.
You can include wording in your will or trust such as: “I give and devise to Texas Public Radio

my estate], to be used for general operating support.”
• Restricted Bequests: Permits Texas Public Radio to use your gift in the manner you designate,
such as a specific area of interest (news, talk programming, equipment, etc.).

Radio after all other specific bequests have been satisfied and all debts and expenses have been
• Contingent Bequest: Gives all or a portion of your estate to Texas Public Radio when a named
