Bequest Language and Legal Info

Planning for the future and creating the legacy you wish to leave is one of the most effective ways to ensure a lasting impact. Making a gift in your will or living trust, known as a bequest, can guarantee that your legacy endures. Your gift may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate or the remainder after all other provisions are specified.

If you decide to join our Legacy Circle by including CapRadio in your plans, know that you've got options:

  • Legacy gifts toward the CapRadio Endowment will enhance a permanent, self-sustaining funding source that supports innovative projects and local content, while helping us weather the ups and downs of the economy.
  • Legacy gifts toward CapRadio will support our ongoing operational expenses

Below is suggested language to use when drafting your bequest.
