Make a Gift to the IPR Endowment

A gift to the Interlochen Public Radio endowment is an investment in IPR's future. Endowment funds are invested, and only the earnings from these investments are spent to offset program fees and other operating costs. Each year a portion of the earnings are reinvested, ensuring that the fund retains its buying power over time. Since an endowment’s principal is never spent, a gift to our endowment is a permanent investment in IPR’s enduring mission.

Make a Gift of Appreciated Securities (Stocks)

Using securities that have gone up in value since you bought them is an excellent way to make a gift to IPR. In most cases, you will be entitled to an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift and will not have to report capital gain income. We are equipped to accept stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
