Donors Gregg and Victor share their story about designating KQED as a beneficiary in their living will.
How to Make a Gift
You can make a gift (bequest) to KQED through your will or living trust in the following ways:
- A percentage of the residue of your total estate — In using this approach, your gift adjusts with changes in the size of your estate.
- A gift of a specific amount.
- A residual amount, where KQED receives a portion after other loved ones or family members are taken care of first.
- A contingent bequest, in which KQED only receives a gift if other conditions are met. For example, you give $25,000 provided your spouse does not survive you.

“I give [describe dollar amount or percentage of estate residue] to KQED Inc., a California not-for-profit corporation, for its general purposes. KQED’s primary office is located at 2601 Mariposa Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.”
- KQED’s Federal Tax I.D. Number is: 94-1241309

“KQED provides education, information and entertainment to people from all walks of life; it is crucial to a thriving democracy. That’s why I’ve made an endowment gift in my living trust. I’m delighted that my gift will one day extend my support far beyond the annual gifts I make to KQED today.”
– Caitlin Croughan, Former Member of the KQED Board of Directors and a Member of the Jonathan C. Rice Legacy Society
