Tavi Gevinson's fashion blog, The Style Rookie, is a must-see Web destination. She's been invited to runway shows all over the world and has written for and been profiled in magazines like The New Yorker and French Vogue. Oh, and by the way, she started blogging at age 11 ... which was four years ago. Gevinson has now launched a new Web magazine, RookieMag.com.
Jason Bateman is that rarest of creatures: a former child star who seems sane and successful. He starred in many '70s and '80s sitcoms, and of course, the classic Teen Wolf Too. He went on to play the nice-guy lead in Arrested Development, and also appeared in the movies Hancock, Juno, Horrible Bosses and The Change-Up.
Most of us, if given the chance, would like to leave some kind of lasting legacy to show that our lives have made a difference to society; that in some way, we have contributed to an important work or cause that will benefit the lives of others for generations to come. In the past, only a privileged few could create such legacies. But today, with the tax-favored ways of giving, many more of us can participate in this adventure to experience the intense joy that comes from being able to make a difference. At KCUR, listener-contributors who establish "planned gifts" become members of "The Walt Bodine Legacy Guild".
Support public media in Kansas City by making an estate gift to KCUR
It's easy to include KCUR in your will or trust. You can make a bequest as large or as small as you desire. You may consider a percentage of your property ("50 percent of my estate") or a specified amount ("$75,000").
You may set up a trust in your will to educate your grandchildren and, only after their educational needs are met, will the trust benefit KCUR.
You may use a codicil or trust amendment to add KCUR to your estate plan without completely rewriting your will or trust.
Please discuss options with your attorney, who can also assist you in setting up your bequest.
Get some extra mileage out of your unwanted vehicle by donating it to KCUR!
If you have a car or other vehicle that you don't want anymore, you can donate it and generate cash for KCUR.
We accept most vehicles, from cars to boats to motorcycles — running or not.
The vehicle donation program is administered by Vehicles for Charity, a non-profit organization. They'll facilitate the process of transferring the title, and they'll make arrangements to pick up the vehicle for free. You can claim the value of the vehicle as a charitable contribution for tax purposes.
An important contribution to quality radio is made by foundations, corporations and individuals who provide funds to underwrite the presentation of a program or series of programs broadcast on KCUR.
What is underwriting? KCUR 89.3 FM acknowledges corporate contributions to the radio station with brief on-air messages called underwriting. Since these contributions help pay for programming costs, underwriting is to public radio what advertising is to commercial stations. The value and number of on-air messages is determined by their placement during the broadcast schedule. KCUR provides a rate sheet which specifies the values of the messages throughout our program schedule.
Your support makes possible the award-winning local, national and international programming you hear on KCUR and kcur.org. Approximately 80 percent of KCUR's operating budget is funded by the community of the Kansas City area.
