Other Ways to Give

Legacy Circle

Include Houston Public Media in your will, living trust, IRA or as a beneficiary to a retirement plan.  Find more information on our Legacy Circle page.

IRA Charitable Rollover

The IRA Charitable Rollover legislation passed by Congress ended on 12/31/2013. That law allowed individuals who are 70 1/2 or older to make direct gifts from an IRA to charitable organizations. Donations must have been distributed from the account by 12/31/13. As soon as Houston Public Media learns the status of 2014 legislation, we will notify members via the website and selected electronic and postal mailing lists. To learn more, or be placed on the distribution list, please contact Stephanie Carroll at scarroll@houstonpublicmedia.org or call 713.743.8458

Stock or securities

A gift of appreciated securities – either publicly traded or from a private company – may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash.  With a gift of stock, you can deduct the fair market value as a charitable gift and completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation.
