Plant the Seed to Your Legacy Since joining PBS North Carolina four years ago, I have enjoyed getting to know many of our legacy donors—the supporters who have notified us that PBS North Carolina is in their estate plan. We value every one of them! In addition to sharing an appreciation of the programs and services of our 66-year-old media organization, legacy donors considered how to support both their family—and their values—through their estate plan. Sometimes that idea starts as a little seed, and our Legacy Society makes sure we’ll have a forest to keep public media going for another 60 plus years. Consider Joan and Monty, Legacy Society members from the Winston-Salem area. Travel has always been a big part of their lives, and PBS NC serves as a reliable and ready resource for just that, adding shoots and vines to their travels and interactions with their community. Joan and Monty are avid viewers of PBS NC’s history, travel and lifestyle programs as well as PBS NewsHour and BBC News, gleaning guidance and insight into the locations they visit. While continuing annual support, Joan and Monty have also included a gift in their will—creating branches for those who come after. Monty explains, “PBS NC is a wonderful source for information and ideas. We have learned so much from watching it, and we want to do what we can to make sure it is available for a long, long time. As a teacher, I appreciate and value public television’s advocacy of knowledge.” Joan adds, “PBS NC programming is a treasure, and it should not be missed by future generations.” If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll join Joan and Monty in planning your estate. October 18-24 is National Estate Planning Awareness Week, an annual effort sponsored by professional estate planning advisors, and PBS affiliates across the country join this cause. This month we ask you to Plant the Seed, reminding you to make an estate plan and begin the journey to grow your legacy—allowing the seeds you plant to grow into a branching tree that shades, nourishes and strengthens future generations to come. If you already have PBS NC in your estate plan, please let me know—I’d (we’d) like to thank you. Please take a moment to request our complimentary guidebook, “Planning Your Legacy,” by going to pbsnc.org/planttheseed. Or contact me at giftplanning@pbsnc.org or 877-485-3200. How can we help you provide for your family and the future of North Carolina by starting with a tiny seed? Growing together,

Warren Bingham, Planned Giving Officer pbsnclegacy.org
