A gift to the WGBH Educational Foundation is a wonderful way to honor a friend's birthday, holiday, the birth of a child, or a new marriage. It can also be a meaningful way to mark the passing of a friend or family member who wanted to leave a legacy that will help ensure that we can continue to produce and distribute high-quality programs that educate, entertain and inspire. WGBH offers several ways for you to recognize an important person while providing much-needed support to our mission.
Your gift will ensure that WGBH takes on important subjects with a depth of commitment and expertise increasingly rare in the commercial media landscape. You will also receive a letter of thanks, and we will notify the honoree of your gift or the family of the deceased.
Honor someone's birthday, anniversary, or a holiday with a gift to WGBH.
Honor friends or loved ones who are no longer with us, with a gift to WGBH.

Named Endowed Funds
If you are considering making a more significant gift to WGBH in tribute or in memory of a special loved one, we would suggest you establish a named endowed fund. The endowment has enabled the WGBH Educational Foundation to ensure that it will have the resources to achieve its mission for generations to come. Endowment funds are invested to maximize total return rather than annual cash earnings. These funds, which can be named after an honoree, are established at $25,000.
