Legacy Gifts: Friends of the Future Society
Friends of NET interested in preserving the future our Nebraska-based programs are encouraged to make provisions in their estate plans that include NET. Gifts or Future Interest or Planned Gifts are a wonderful way for your legacy to live on for many generations to come. Here are a few ways to support NET:
- Life Insurance
- Retirement Funds
- Charitable Gift Annuities
- Charitable Trusts
- Endowment Gifts
These gifts may be directed to restricted endowment funds, or board designated endowment funds. Only an annual percentage of earnings from the restricted fund is invested into programs. The board of directors has discretion of its fund, but typically earnings, only, are withdrawn annually and the funds are invested in local programming.
- Special Endowment Funds for Arts, Humanities, Sports, and other interests available.
- Naming Opportunities for Gifts of $100,000 and above available.
All donors making planned gifts in support of the NET Foundation for Television and/or the NET Foundation for Radio receive exclusive membership and recognition in the Friends of the Future society.
