It’s estimated that over 120 million Americans do not have a proper estate plan so PBS and a group of PBS Member Stations joined the movement to promote National Estate Planning Awareness Week. This nationally recognized effort aims to help create stronger and more financially sound communities nationwide.
This October, 70 stations will participate in the Sixth Annual National Estate Planning Awareness Campaign tailored for public television. This promotion involves sending a mail piece (“QuickCard”), airing a spot, sending an e-blast and other activities to help station supporters get their “Ducks in a Row.”
Anyone who returns the reply device receives the free offer, a Personal Estate Planning Guide. The reply device also inquires whether the respondent want information about planned giving and/or has included the station in his or her estate plans.
This signature campaign for public television was inspired by WNET, the first station in the system to promote National Estate Planning Awareness Week.
The full project description, including costs, expectations, and deliverables, can be found here.
