Bequest in Your Will | Ways To Give | OETA

Many viewers have provided for OETA in their wills and, for most of them, it is the largest gift to OETA they could ever consider.

You Decide

In your will, you have choices as to how you name OETA Foundation as a beneficiary. Whichever you select, it is important that your attorney know that bequests should be made to “OETA Foundation, 7403 North Kelley Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73111.” Our federal tax identification number is 73-1175503.

    • One possibility is a bequest of a fixed dollar amount. You specify exactly how much you would like the station to receive.
    • Another is to give OETA a percentage of your estate. This makes good sense if you don’t have a clear idea of how much your estate will be worth at your death.

Finally, many people prefer to designate the residuary estate, or a portion of it. Once other heirs are provided for, whatever may be left goes to your favorite public television station.


Tell Your Attorney

The following suggested language will be of interest to your attorney.

“I give and bequeath to OETA Foundation with its offices at 7403 North Kelley Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73111, ($___, or ___% of my estate, or my residuary estate).”
