Your Values Live Today and Tomorrow Through a Legacy Gift: Gary Burandt
For Gary Burandt, making his first gift to Colorado Public Radio was a decision rooted in his core values. "I would feel badly if I was a taker and not a giver," he explains.
He goes on to say, "I benefit from the content and smart broadcasting that CPR and NPR provide. I enjoy variety, learning about things I'd never thought about—national and local content—and hearing how 'Colorado Matters' brings it home."
As a businessman, Gary appreciates knowing what's going on in the world. That information helps him and others make smart decisions that grow both his business and employment opportunities in Colorado. For Gary, giving back to CPR "seems like the right thing to do."
Hearing an on-air testimonial about becoming a Legacy Partner inspired Gary to include Colorado Public Radio in his estate plan. Knowing that this type of gift would help ensure continued value for future generations of CPR listeners made the choice an easy one. Like many others, Gary found that joining CPR as a Legacy Partner also enables him to make a more significant contribution than he can today. For Gary, the ultimate impact is securing Colorado Public Radio's continued ability to reflect the state's interests. "It's a good feeling to know that I've contributed to that conversation."
To others who might be thinking about becoming Legacy Partners, Gary says, "Just do it! Think about how important CPR has been in your daily life. The more time we have, the more we can enjoy Colorado Public Radio."
