I don’t remember exactly when I started listening to WNYC, but it’s become an integral part of my day – from the bed, to the kitchen, to the car! I really feel that it expands my world, enriches my life and satisfies my curiosity. Because I wanted to help sustain the programs that I had come to love, I decided to set up my first charitable gift annuity almost ten years ago. Don’t ever think that whatever you can give is not enough. It’s a start and will help keep the stations we love from disappearing in the future.

Over the years WNYC has become an essential part of my daily life, helping me to speak knowledgeably about current events – local, national and international – as well as music and culture with my colleagues and friends. When I was recently updating my will and reflecting on what organizations were important to my life, it seemed only fitting that I include WNYC in my plans – to help ensure the station’s continuity for future generations and as my way of saying thank you.

The key to our functioning well in society is information. I’ve always been concerned that we have free access to the facts, ideas and background information we need to make informed choices and sustain our community, our country, our world. WNYC provides that context for me. That’s why when the time came for me to consider what I wanted to leave as my legacy, I decided to become a member of the Listeners Legacy Circle.

I listen to WNYC every single day. The station is New York City. It takes the pulse of the city and transmits it back to us succinctly and intelligently. Placing it at the top of my list of organizations that mean the most to me when I created my estate plan was my way of giving back to the station that serves me and the city I love so well. I feel wonderful about it!
