Planned Giving | Support | OETA




For many, a charitable bequest is a unique expression of appreciation for what public broadcasting brings to our lives and our communities. The thoughtfulness of individuals who have made planned gifts to OETA Foundation has helped sustain and grow public television programs and services for almost 60 years.


Through your will or estate plan, you can name OETA Foundation as the beneficiary of your estate or a portion of your estate. Your bequest provides an enduring legacy that will live on to uphold the standards of public broadcasting in our state for the benefit of others in the years to come.


Benefits of Joining the Legacy Society


The Best Benefit of All: Remembering OETA Foundation in your estate plan is an expression of your values and a significant way to personally recognize the tremendous influence that OETA’s educational programming and services have on enriching the lives of people across Oklahoma and beyond.

Federal Estate Tax Savings: An outright gift to OETA Foundation from your estate, whatever the amount, carries federal estate tax benefits. Also, bequests generally are not subject to state inheritance taxes. Please consult with your advisor for details.

Recognition Opportunities: You will be recognized on-air and in Odyssey magazine annually, with your permission. You will also receive invitations to exclusive events.
