Cash Gifts

Should you decide to give cash through your will or living trust, your estate may be able to claim an estate tax deduction.


Life Insurance

A life insurance policy is another way to make a gift to KMOS. Contact your insurance provider, request a beneficiary designation form and include KMOS (legal name: KMOS-Television; A public broadcasting entity operated by University of Central Missouri) as the beneficiary of your policy.


Retirement Assets

By naming KMOS as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) and/or 403(b) you will assure that every dollar will be used for charitable purposes and shielded from income or estate taxes. Another great benefit is this option avoids possible delays and various costs associated with probate administration.



Suggested Language you might use in your will to designate KMOS as a beneficiary:"I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to the University of Central Missouri Foundation, Federal Tax ID # 43-1181566, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for the restricted use and purpose by KMOS Television.

Information and Resources
