Include WTIP in Your Estate Plan

Want to ensure that WTIP Community Radio remains strong and healthy far into the future? Please consider a gift through your estate plan. There are many ways to contribute. A planned gift can be in the form of a will or bequest, or as a gift of stock, annuities, charitable and lead trusts, real estate, retirement assets and more.
 
You can also contribute to WTIP through a gift now or in the future to the WTIP Community Radio Fund, a permanent fund at the Cook County Community Fund. This endowment fund was created to provide earnings into the future for the ongoing operation of WTIP. As the fund grows, so too will the earnings that WTIP receives each year, enabling us to keep providing and expanding the local information and entertainment you have come to rely on and enjoy.

Have you already included WTIP in your estate plans? Please let us know by contacting Jana Kokemiller-Berka, WTIP’s development director, at 218-387-1070 or email jana@wtip.org. We would love the opportunity to thank you, and would like to make sure your intentions are carried out properly.
