Leave a legacy that will have a lasting impact across the Sioux Empire!

A planned gift to KNWC has the potential for impact that multiplies many times over for a tremendous spiritual return on investment! Our stations reach people throughout the Sioux Empire every day with the good news of Jesus – and a single listener may directly and indirectly influence hundreds or even thousands of people in his or her lifetime. Being intentional about how we live our lives and how we invest our time and money is one way we can make certain future generations have a chance to benefit from our mission to lead people to Christ and nourish them in their spiritual journey.

Planned gifts can be made during your lifetime or through your estate and may consist of:

  • Bequest through a Will or Trust
  • Charitable Trust
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Beneficiary of real estate, retirement plan or life insurance policy

Through Life 96.5/Faith 1270, your partnership can be custom-tailored to meet your goals and bless countless people through ministries that reflect your stewardship commitment, vision and values. Our planned giving professionals are available as a resource for you as you explore the opportunities for legacy giving.
