Planned Giving

The KET Legacy Circle

Thank you for your trust and confidence in KET, and for considering becoming the newest member of the Legacy Circle, KET’s planned giving society.

By honoring KET in this deeply personal and lasting way, you can ensure that KET remains a transformational source of learning, culture and citizenship—for all Kentuckians.

Estate gifts to KET are placed in a permanent investment account ensuring distributions of interest income to benefit Kentuckians — in perpetuity.

The Millennium Fund holds all unrestricted assets, while donors with a specific interest may designate their gift for a restricted purpose:

  • Endowment for Kentucky Productions
  • John R. Hall Endowment for Education
  • W. Paul and Lucille Caudill Little Endowment for the Arts
  • O. Leonard Press Endowment for Public Affairs
  • KET/PBS Program Fund (categories: Arts, History, Science/Nature, News, Children/Family)

Ways to leave a legacy

  • Bequest
    Include KET in a will or estate plan.
  • Tax-deferred accounts
    Name KET as a beneficiary of a current 401(k), 403(b), IRA, or Roth IRA accounts.
  • Life insurance
    Name the Commonwealth Fund for KET owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Life income annuities, gifts of stock or property and other options are available to meet certain charitable goals.
