Our Guide can help you get your estate plans off the ground.

Whatever your stage in life, it is a good idea to think about and plan for how your affairs will be handled after you've gone. A few simple steps today can give you peace of mind tomorrow by ensuring that your wishes are honored and your loved ones are well protected. Your estate plan can also be used to support charitable causes that matter most to you, such as the quality programs and education services offered to our community by PBS Fort Wayne.

Consult with Your Attorney

Below is suggested language that you might use in your will to designate PBS Fort Wayne/Fort Wayne Public Television Inc as a beneficiary in your will:
