Endowment Gifts

An endowment is a permanent fund in which your gift is invested in perpetuity, while quarterly distributions provide a steady, reliable source of financial support to the station.

Endowment protects the future of Michigan Public. Investment in securities creates a sustainable funding source, helping to ensure Michigan communities always have access to reliable news and information.

Growing our endowment produces permanent resources for innovative programs, continuing education in journalism, and advances in media technology. It provides flexible funding to create new regional bureaus as well as offers competitive salaries that attract and retain the best journalists. The fund also allows us to make future improvements to facilities and other infrastructure.

For more information, email us at philanthropy@umich.edu.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities, Stocks, and Bonds

Gifts of stock are a great way to support the station. You can even use securities to make your annual gift to the station.

In most cases you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income.

All transfers are handled by the University of Michigan’s Treasurer’s Office. Follow this link and please indicate the gift is for Michigan Public.

For assistance with the transfer, email us at philanthropy@umich.edu.

Legacy Gifts

Estate and planned gifts allow a donor to leave money or assets upon his or her death. Giving through your will or trust offers a way to support Michigan Public's mission while meeting your current financial needs.
