From the General Manager: Leave a Legacy

Ann_smallWe had never heard of her. There was no record of previous donations — just a phone call from a friend who was handling her estate, letting us know that she had left KMFA a portion of her IRA, a generous gift. “What can you tell me about your friend?” I asked the executor. “She was just someone who loved your station.” What a wonderful call to receive, and what a touching affirmation of the strong connection that is forged between KMFA and its 100,000 weekly listeners. I do wish I had been able to meet her and thank her in person.

Since 1967, KMFA has thrived because of the support that comes from so many listeners — gifts of all sizes from donors of all ages, year after year. As we move toward our Golden Anniversary just three years from now, we are making an active effort to encourage you, our loving community of listeners, to consider a legacy gift that will go even further to secure the future of this beloved classical music institution.

A planned gift can be made to support ongoing operations, or can be designated to the KMFA Permanent Endowment Fund. A gift of cash or real estate can be listed in your will, or you can designate KMFA a beneficiary in an insurance policy or retirement account. There are many other options that we would be happy to discuss with you. If you have already included KMFA as part of your estate planning, please let us know so that we can thank you in person!

For more information about a planned gift, please be in touch with David Hammond, Director of Development, at 512-476-5632 or dhammond@kmfa.org. We would be delighted to hear from you and talk to you about the important role you can play in keeping the glorious sounds of classical music on the airwaves for future generations of Central Texans.
