Flo's Legacy Fund
For almost 28 years, KUVO/KVJZ’s broadcast service has provided Colorado and beyond with JAZZ, BLUES and diverse programs that educate, inspire and entertain. We wish to continue this tradition of quality broadcasting for you, our listeners, members, and upcoming generations. While annual memberships, underwriting and grants are critical to KUVO’s success and provide an annual base of support for our programming, our future success depends on our ability to build a sustainable source of funding that provides for today, tomorrow, and the future as well.
In 2010, KUVO established the Flo Legacy Fund to step beyond our annual membership drives and seek alternative, more permanent sources through an endowment fund. Our mission: To provide distinctive music, news, and informational programming that reflects the values and cultural diversity of our listener community.
Your donation will honor Flo's contributions to KUVO, as we establish an endowment that will provide base-line support for KUVO now and assure our future economic stability

Ways to Give to the Flo Legacy Fund: Types of Legacy Gifts
REVOCABLE GIFTS: these are the most common form of legacy gift. Donors can "revoke" the gift if charitable interests or personal circumstances change. Because donors retain their right to withdraw the gift during their lifetime, there is no tax deduction available to them.
IRREVOCABLE GIFTS: these gifts cannot be rescinded by the owner. Once given, these gifts are typically part of a contractual gift agreement for the donor or with the charity. Irrevocable gifts include cash, securities, and real estate that are gifted outright or transferred through an estate planning vehicle such as a charitable remainder trust. Since the donor gives up legal title or claim on the asset, an income tax deduction is provided to the donor for making this type of gift.
