Join the Community of People Who Want Public Broadcasting to Span Generations

WMHT has been a valued and trusted organization in our community for more than 50 years. We encourage you to partner with WMHT in shaping the future of public media by naming WMHT in your will or other estate plans.

Join WMHT's Legacy Circle

WMHT's Legacy Circle offers you the opportunity to make a promise to future generations that excellent public broadcasting will be here, enriching the lives of generations to come.

When you provide for WMHT in your will, living trust, life insurance, retirement plan, life income gift or other estate plan, you are invited to become a member of the WMHT Legacy Circle. The Legacy Circle honors the philanthropic leadership and vision of those individuals who have so thoughtfully provided for the future of WMHT through a planned gift.

Private philanthropy is an integral part of WMHT's success, and its future. Legacy Circle gifts help to ensure the continuation of our mission of public service and preserve our shared values for the benefit of future generations.

Benefits of Membership

Enjoy an array of rewarding benefits, including:

  • Access to a video lending library of WMHT programs.
  • Access to invitation-only events at WMHT Studios.
  • Exclusive opportunities to join peers and PBS/NPR personalities at events.
  • A quarterly insider's update from WMHT President Robert Altman.
  • Private, guided tours of WMHT Studios.

If you have already included WMHT in your estate plan, we deeply appreciate your generous commitment. We hope you will choose to let us know so that we may thank you personally and recognize your kindness in the records of the WMHT Legacy Circle.

If you wish your gift to remain anonymous, we pledge not to publish or disclose your identity. Everything will be held in strictest confidence, but you will still enjoy the benefits of your membership. To notify us of your future gift or for more information, please contact Sandra Beer, sbeer@wmht.org, 518-880-3462, or simply fill out this form.

If you have not yet included WMHT in your will or estate plans, we invite you to become a Legacy Circle member today.
