IRA Charitable Rollover

If you've been thinking about supporting WGBH, there's never been a better time.

If you are 70 1/2 or older, you may transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to WGBH and enjoy tax savings through a "Charitable IRA Rollover." Learn more >

What will your legacy be?

All of us can leave an enduring mark on the institutions we value.

Whether you want to sustain the award-winning WGBH programs that you and your family love, or shape the future of public media, your planned gift of any size will help ensure WGBH’s ability to create and deliver educationally rich programs — on TV, on radio, and online — that millions of Americans count on every day. All planned gifts are added to the WGBH Endowment.

Explore your options

Our experienced Planned Giving staff can help you achieve your financial and philanthropic goals.

There are a number of ways to give, and we encourage you to explore your options. We’ll work closely, and confidentially, with you and your advisors. The right plan can offer tax benefits, income for you or your family, and estate planning advantages, all the while supporting WGBH’s mission to educate, inspire, and entertain. And with your gift, you’ll also qualify for membership in WGBH’s Great Blue Hill Society with special benefits and privileges.

Supporting WGBH

Why I support WGBH

"Public broadcasting touches more people in more ways than any other cultural or educational institution in the nation today. That's why WGBH is at the top of my giving list. I'm especially grateful for its in-depth coverage and analysis of current events."

-George Cha, life income donor
