How Will You Leave Your Legacy?

In 1944, 91.5 KRCC began as a two-room public address system in the basement of Bemis Hall. Professor Woodson Tyree, Director of the Radio and Drama Department at Colorado College, was the founder and inspirational force in the program that one day became KRCC-FM. Professor Tyree's legacy and vision were instrumental in establishing 91.5 KRCC in Southern Colorado.

The Tyree Legacy Society was established in 2018 to honor the legacy of Professor Tyree, and to allow other visionary 91.5 KRCC listeners to leave generous gifts that further the mission of public radio in Southern Colorado. Members of The Tyree Legacy Fund realize the importance of public media, and give generously to ensure that 91.5 KRCC remains strong and ready to face challenges far into the future.

The Most Popular Planned Gifts

Gifts From Your Will

General Bequest

Through a provision in your written and executed will, you can make a gift in the form of cash, securities, real estate or personal property. There are many types of bequests. Choose the one that best fits your needs and intentions.

Beneficiary Gifts

Retirement Accounts

Naming KRCC as the beneficiary of a qualified retirement plan asset such as a 401(k), 403(b), IRA, Keogh, profit-sharing pension plan or other donor-advised funds, will accomplish a charitable goal while realizing significant tax savings.

Gifts That Pay You

Charitable Gift Annuity

You can turn underperforming assets (stock, cash in a savings account, CDs, savings bonds, etc.) into a gift to KRCC that provides income to you. Your Charitable Gift Annuity will give you quarterly, fixed payments for life and tax benefits, too.

Current Gift Options

Gifts of Stock

Appreciated Stock

When you donate appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares instead of cash, you'll receive charitable deductions at full, fair market value while reducing capital gains impact.

Charitable IRA Rollover

Retirement Accounts

If you're 70 ½ or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to KRCC. While there is no charitable deduction for a rollover gift, you do avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution.

Gifts That Pay You

Gifts of Property

Like stock, the fair market value of gifts of appreciated assets such as real estate, artwork, and other well curated collections, can be deducted from your income tax today and reduce your estate taxes in the future.
