Debra Abrams describes her legacy decision

"If you find something of value like I do with local programming that we have such as Colorado Matters, the unbiased news and the entertainment programs, then you need to stand behind it so it’s there for others in the future. Whatever I’m able to leave behind as a legacy will enable others to enjoy what I have enjoyed." 

Doug Jones

“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.”

Laura 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."
