Legacy Society

Legacy Society members help ensure the best of public media for generations to come by including VPM in their will, trust, or other estate plans. Legacy Society benefits are based on the level of written financial commitment and aligned with those Commonwealth Circle members receive for annual giving. Legacy Society members have an opportunity to be recognized in the VPM supporter listing.

Options There are many donor-friendly options available - some of which are better for income planning during your lifetime and some of which are better for planning for after your death:

All donors who give in these ways are eligible for membership in the Legacy Society.

Benefits include:

  • Monthly communication about programming, station activities and initiatives
  • Invitations to 2-3 VPM events per year
  • Invitation to a station tour

My late husband, David, and I have always believed in the Stations’ mission to educate, entertain and inspire. It’s great for our kids, great for our community, and we want it around for a long time.”

– Ann Louise Martin

We encourage you to consider making a planned gift to the VPM and speak with your financial advisor about which option makes the most sense for you. We are available to work with your professional advisors, but we do not provide legal or tax advice.

Through the purchase of a life insurance policy, I was able to make a much more significant gift to VPM that I could otherwise. I want to be sure that my daughter, her children and the people of this community have the benefit of public broadcasting after I’m gone.”
