WYSO

Bequests / Planned Giving

WYSO has been a treasured part of the Greater Dayton and Springfield community since 1958 because listeners like you have supported it. Supporting WYSO with a bequest in your will, as a beneficiary of your estate plans or through a number of planned giving vehicle options, is a wonderful tribute to your relationship with WYSO.

WYSO’s Legacy Society recognizes supporters of 91.3 WYSO who have created a provision in their estate plans or established a planned gift to benefit the station and have informed WYSO of this generous intent. Legacy Society members provide long-term financial stability to WYSO.

Your legacy can be tailored to your overall estate plans, and may include*, but is not limited to:

  • A bequest in your will or trust
  • An insurance policy with the station as beneficiary or policy owner
  • A charitable remainder trust
  • An individual retirement account
  • Gifts of personal property or securities

*Gifts to WYSO are subject to the station’s gift acceptance policies.

Through your plans, you have the opportunity to:

  • Endow your annual support in perpetuity through an estate gift
  • Provide for critical station needs and equipment
  • Provide a tribute to family and/or friends through honorary and memorial giving

WYSO’s Legacy Society members are recognized and thanked through on-air testimonials, with private invitations to special events, and within online & print publications.
