Planning Your Gifts

Thank you for your interest in learning about the many benefits of gift planning. Being proactive with your assets for the future allows you to ensure increased benefits for yourself and your family while making a gift to the Arkansas PBS Foundation that will support quality programs and services at Arkansas PBS for the next generation!


The gift you decide on for the Arkansas PBS Foundation can take a number of different forms. Look through the sections on What to Give, How to Give, and Donor Stories to get an idea of what might work for you. A gift through a will or trust is the easiest to set up and can be changed at any time. But there are other options for making a gift now, that can be beneficial to you as well.


Gifts generously given to the Arkansas PBS Foundation through a will or trust are placed in our General Endowment unless directed differently by you. Earnings generated from the investments also grow the Endowment. This fund exists to help cover cost increases for purchasing national programs, to help fund local program production, and to help fund the expansion of new program and service ventures, while safeguarding against any potential decrease in operating funds.


If you have any questions, please call 1-800-662-2386. A member of our Arkansas PBS Foundation team will be happy to help you.

Give It Twice Trust - Help Family and Charity

You may be looking for a way to provide your children with income while making a gift to Arkansas PBS Foundation. The "give it twice" trust is a popular option that allows you to transfer your IRA or other asset at death to fund a term of years charitable remainder unitrust. We call this kind of unitrust a give it twice trust because you can use the trust to pay income first to your family for a number of years and then distribute the balance of the trust to charity.

Benefits of a give it twice trust

  • Use the full value of your unused retirement account to provide income to your surviving spouse and to provide income to children or other loved ones for a specified period of time
  • Create an estate tax deduction and savings from the charitable gift
  • Support the important charitable work of Arkansas PBS Foundation

How a give it twice trust works

  1. We can help you and your attorney with the process of creating a charitable remainder unitrust.
  2. You complete an IRA or other retirement account beneficiary designation form, naming the charitable trust as the beneficiary, and return the form to the account custodian.
  3. When you pass away, the custodian will transfer your retirement account to the charitable trust.
  4. The trust will pay income to your spouse, children or other individual beneficiaries for their life, term of years or life plus term of years.
  5. At the conclusion of the payments, the balance of the trust will be transferred to Arkansas PBS Foundation.
