Legacy Gifts

Be a part of public television’s future through planned giving

Several longtime station supporters have decided to honor the legacy of public television and be a part of its future by including a gift to PBS Hawai‘i in their estate plans. Their generosity helps sustain our independence as a locally owned station and assists us in our mission.

PBS Hawaiʻi remains committed to connecting and engaging local communities in thoughtful public discourse through Insights on PBS Hawai‘i, nourishing their appreciation for culture and the arts on Nā Mele; Traditions in Hawaiian Song and Great Performances, preserving the lessons of history through American Experience and shape Hawai‘i’s future with our statewide student news network, HIKI NŌ. A charitable bequest made in your will or trust sustains these programs, and makes a lasting impact on our beloved island home.

Stocks and Bonds

Gifts of appreciated securities may help you avoid the capital gains tax while giving you a charitable income tax deduction.
