Couple Finds Way to Give and Receive

Couple Finds Way to Give and Receive
Bill and Delia Purdy are KCTS 9 Legacy Circle members who value public television for its "trustworthiness, thoroughness, educational content, high-quality entertainment programs and lack of commercials."

A sound engineer, Bill developed an appreciation for the value of and need for noncommercial broadcasting early in his career. He went on to found a company that produced equipment for cinemas and theatres. Delia's appreciation for KCTS 9 and public television is rooted in her four decades in education as a third-grade teacher and then as an elementary school principal.

Discovering the Charitable Gift Annuity

Approaching retirement and the sale of Bill's business, the Purdys wanted to provide a gift for the future of KCTS 9, as well as a source of income for themselves. A charitable gift annuity turned out to be the perfect solution: lifetime tax-advantaged payments for Bill and Delia, and when the gift annuity ends, the remaining balance helps KCTS 9 continue to provide programs that inform, involve and inspire the community.

Thank you, Bill and Delia.
