Make WOSU’s Future a Part of Your Legacy

For over a century, WOSU Public Media has been committed to engaging, informing, and inspiring our diverse community. As we look ahead to our next hundred years, we ask to you to help us provide high-quality programming that challenges the mind and fills the soul.

Help support thought-provoking television and radio programs, inspirational classical music, student internships, and educational outreach throughout Central Ohio with a planned gift. Giving through your will, trust, life insurance, or retirement accounts are excellent ways to sustain WOSU Public Media for the future, enabling you to make a more profound impact than might otherwise be possible.

Your gift will qualify you to become a member of the Neil Legacy Society and could entitle you to tax benefits and estate advantages.
