Plans that include Idaho Public Television can add value to client services

Just as people plan for their futures, Idaho Public Television is planning for the future of public broadcasting in Idaho. That is why we are now carefully taking steps to assure we will have the resources to fulfill our mission in the coming years regardless of ups and downs in the economy or government funding.

As an advisor, you are in a unique position. You have the opportunity to direct the philanthropy and the charitable interests of individuals by devising strategies that are meaningful, sustainable and responsive.

Idaho Public Television is exactly that, meaningful, sustainable and responsive — making the organization a wonderful choice for a donor to leave their legacy. A trusted statewide resource, Idaho Public Television uses the power of noncommercial television, the Internet and other media to enrich all of our lives through quality programs and educational services that inform, inspire, and delight.

Often, clients have no idea of the options, alternatives, opportunities and appropriate organizations available for effective planned giving. Idaho Public Television is an IRS designated 501(c)3 non-profit organization able to offer donors tax deductible benefits from their Planned Giving contributions.

Our fiscal office is experienced; annual audited financial reports are available on request.

Planned Giving contributions are placed in the Idaho Public Television Endowment and invested for the greatest return. The Idaho Public Television Foundation Board of Directors has an established Statement of Investment Policies with benchmarks for monitoring portfolio growth. A Spending policy outlines procedures for use of interest in support of Idaho Public Television needs.

As you assist clients in launching or adjusting their formal planned giving programs, I ask you to consider Idaho Public Television in your recommendations and advising.
