We also thank the many Legacy Circle members who have chosen to remain anonymous.

“CPR’s gift to me for the past 40 years has been the certainty of knowing that I will learn and I will be entertained. My wish is that CPR is able to continue in perpetuity and those who follow will be able to share this gift. I chose to give CPR a percentage of my estate, and I told CPR about it. I encourage you to do the same.”

- Bonnie Schriner

Audio: Laural Amsel speaks from the heart

"I’m delighted to be a Legacy Circle member with Colorado Public Radio. The whole history of western civilization has to do with standing on the shoulders of those who have come before us, and providing a foundation for those who will come after us. When you’re making a bequest in your will, select organizations that are doing work that you want to support beyond your lifetime. CPR is definitely one of those organizations."

- Gail Wells
