Donor Advised Funds
In addition to annual gifts you designate to KQED and other charities from your donor advised fund, you may designate one or more charities to receive any balance remaining in your account at death.
How: Fidelity, Schwab, Vanguard, and other companies with charitable gift funds permit such designations — subject to terms of the fund agreements — and community foundations and other donor advised fund sponsors often have similar arrangements. Check with your account manager for details and the necessary forms. Use KQED's legal name "KQED Inc." and Taxpayer ID No., 94-1241309, if needed
Please let us know your plans
By informing KQED of your Legacy Gift, you help us ensure that your intentions are fulfilled and give us the chance to thank you for your generosity. To notify us of your plans, please complete our request for information form or contact us.
