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.
