For over 55 years, KQED's innovative educational, cultural, and public affairs programming has enriched the lives of millions of Northern Californians. You can help sustain KQED's contribution to our community by making a gift from your estate to support the KQED Endowment. With your Legacy Gift, you make a promise to future generations that outstanding media will always be available in Northern California and beyond.
I invite you to explore the options we present on these Web pages to find the approach that best fits your financial situation. A good place to start is viewing the video immediately below describing the bequest of Dale O'Rourke, a very good friend of KQED and other Bay Area charities. My Gift Planning colleagues and I would be pleased to answer any questions you may have. Thank you.
