Turn your legacy into the music you love.

You can help ensure the future of WTMD as Baltimore’s home for significant music by including the station in your estate or financial planning. There are a variety of planned giving options including donating a portion of your estate, naming WTMD a beneficiary of your IRA or life insurance policy, or even establishing a charitable remainder or lead trust. All of these gift vehicles can help you to ensure that WTMD remains a strong advocate for music in the years to come.

You may be able to make a larger charitable donation than you realize by making a planned gift.  Planned or deferred gifts offer you ways to minimize your estate taxes and ensure that your gift has the maximum desired impact on your favorite station.

Carolyn Jewell, WTMD’s Director of Development, can acquaint you with the process and work with you to make your gift. WTMD also welcomes gifts of appreciated stock and securities in support of its programming. Carolyn can be reached at 410-235-1855 or [email protected]
