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 Hawaii in their estate plans. Their generosity helps sustain our independence as a locally owned station and assists us in our mission.


PBS Hawaii remains committed to connecting and engaging local communities in thoughtful public discourse through Insights on PBS Hawaii, nourish their appreciation for culture and the arts on Na Mele and Great Performances, preserve the lessons of history through American Experience and shape Hawaii’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.
