Donor Laurie shares her story and about her gift to KQED.
Simple Estate Gifts to KQED
“I would like to leave something to KQED from my estate plan, but my living trust is only a few years old and I’d rather not have to change it and pay additional legal fees.”
We hear comments like this from time to time. But there are many ways to leave a legacy to KQED simply by filling out a form to make beneficiary designations outside your will or trust. Contact us – we’d be happy to help you start planning for a tax-advantaged gift.
KQED’s EIN and Legal Name
Almost any financial arrangement that allows you to name a beneficiary can be repurposed to benefit KQED with all or part of its remaining value. You’ll need the following information:
- KQED’s Federal Tax I.D. Number is: 94-1241309
- KQED’s legal name is: “KQED Inc.”
- KQED’s address is: 2601 Mariposa St., San Francisco, CA 94110
Here are some popular ways to designate us as a beneficiary of your estate:
- Retirement plans — IRAs, 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans or other retirement savings arrangements
- Bank accounts at banks, savings and loan associations and credit unions
- Brokerage accounts for stock, bond and mutual fund holdings
- Life insurance for a policy no longer needed
- Commercial annuities
- Donor advised funds
Please keep in mind that good estate planning requires coordinating the provisions of your will and/or living trust with all the beneficiary designations you’ve made on IRAs, life insurance policies and other financial accounts.
Please let us know of any beneficiary designation you make on our behalf. Although we understand that your gift is revocable, we want to be sure that your intentions are fulfilled.
