The Nashville Public Radio Legacy Society

The Nashville Public Radio Legacy Society honors the philanthropic leadership and vision of individuals who have provided for the future of public radio in Middle Tennessee by making a Legacy Gift.

Remembering Nashville Public Radio in your will provides a lasting legacy; it's a profound act of generosity that will affect thousands of others for years to come. It's an affirmation of your life, and the things that were important to you. The rewards go far beyond the tax savings that can result from your gift. You'll experience the personal and emotional rewards of helping to insure the future of quality public broadcasting in our community and all around Middle Tennessee.

For more than 50 years, Nashville Public Radio has been broadcasting quality news, cultural features and classical music, and providing sustenance to the spirits and minds of listeners all over Middle Tennessee and into Kentucky. The message you send with a planned gift to Nashville Public Radio will be heard for generations.

"Thoughtful WPLN listeners who make special gifts to the station through their will or a trust help assure the long-term future of public radio in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. I hope you'll consider Nashville Public Radio in your will or estate plan." -President and General Manager Rob Gordon
