Planned Giving

Thank you for your interest in supporting WFIT 89.5 FM.

Through effective gift planning, you can balance personal financial goals with your interest in supporting WFIT, and realize significant tax benefits. We encourage you to contact Barbara Bingnear at 321-674-8140 or bingnear@fit.edu.

We will be glad to answer questions, review your unique circumstances, and let you know about the full range of giving opportunities available at WFIT.

Bequests
Many people don't consider estate planning because they feel they don't have a large enough estate to protect. Bequests of all sizes are valuable to WFIT. Whether you wish to donate your entire estate, a portion of your estate, a fixed dollar amount, or a percentage of your assets, bequests are easy to make. If you already have an existing will, your attorney can help you add a new gift or change a provision by making a simple amendment (a codicil). We are happy to assist you and your advisor through the estate planning process by providing language and documents to ensure your giving objectives are met.

If you would like to leave an unrestricted bequest to WFIT in your will, you may use the following wording:

"I hereby give, devise, and bequeath (insert dollar amount, percentage of estate, or residuary) to WFIT, a non-profit corporation organized under the laws of the State of Florida, currently located at 150 W. University Blvd, Melbourne, for its general purposes..  Please notify us if you include WFIT in your will as we would like to acknowledge your generosity and express our gratitude for your support of WFIT."

Gifts of Stock
Please contact us to discuss the various means to donate stock to WFIT. Please note that your name will not accompany an electronic transfer of shares, so it is very important that you notify us of your intent. We would enjoy the opportunity to thank you and would like to make sure your intentions are carried out properly.

Life Insurance or Retirement Assets
This may be as simple as declaring WFIT a beneficiary of your insurance policy or retirement fund. Your retirement plan benefits advisor or your life insurance professional can help you to make this designation.

General Advice and Information
Please consult with an attorney or financial advisor regarding your planned giving decisions. They will be able to provide tax and legal advice specific to your needs.
