The Classical Station, WCPE FM, has been broadcasting Great Classical Music Since 1978. This is only possible thanks to listener support. One of the many ways that you can help WCPE to continue playing Classical Music for years to come is to leave a planned gift in your will or estate.
WCPE Planned Giving

Leaving a Legacy Gift to The Classical Station will help ensure that the station has a solid foundation to continue operating for generations to come. Educational Information Corporation is the legal name of WCPE FM. The station is a non-profit, listener supported radio station which means that it relies on your tax-deductible support for its funding.

Beneficiary Designation

You may make a planned gift to WCPE FM by naming Educational Information Corporation as a designated beneficiary of your life insurance or retirement account, such as an IRA or 401K. Additionally, some financial institutions may allow you to create a pay-on-death ("POD") or transfer-on-death ("TOD") designation for your checking, savings, money market or certificate of deposit accounts.

Please use our legal name "Educational Information Corporation" and our address and federal tax identification number as shown below on any beneficiary designation form.

Other Options

Charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts are more complex giving techniques that allow you receive income during your lifetime while providing a gift to WCPE FM upon your death. Each year you would receive either a fixed or variable payment. Please consult your attorney and tax advisor for more information on setting up a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust to support WCPE.

Include Charitable Bequest in Your Will or Trust

Here are several ways that you can plan your legacy at WCPE.

Specific gift of cash or property –

I give the sum of ___________ dollars ($______) to the Educational Information Corporation, a North Carolina non-profit corporation, for its unrestricted use [or a specific use].

Distribution of trust property – The Trustee shall distribute [dollar amount/specific property/percentage of trust property] to the Educational Information Corporation, a North Carolina non-profit corporation, for its unrestricted use [or a specific use].

Real Estate

Will or Trust – If you want to give a gift of real estate in your will or trust, please direct the Executor of your Will or the Trustee of your Trust to sell the real estate and give the proceeds from such sale to the Educational Information Corporation. This allows us maximum flexibility to put your gift to use.

Lifetime gift – You may donate your real estate outright to WCPE FM during your lifetime. Another option is a "retained life estate", where you transfer your real estate to WCPE FM but keep the right to occupy the property for your entire lifetime. Educational Information Corporation would be named as the grantee in any deed transferring real estate to WCPE FM.
