Include WHYY in your Legacy: Enrich your Community for Generations
WHYY provides an irreplaceable alternative to commercial media, serving five generations of Delaware Valley Residents since its founding in 1954. We invite you to help us ensure that this tradition continues with a legacy gift to WHYY.
Paul and Vickie Marton
Vickie and Paul’s first public media experience was listening to “The Santaland Diaries,” David Sedaris’ unforgettable account of working as an elf at Macy’s on This American Life. “I thought it was funny, delightful and, like nothing we’ve ever heard. I wanted to know more about the radio station that would have something on it like that.
“Mom required us to watch Channel 12 as a part of our television viewing. WHYY was telling stories that you couldn’t find anywhere else, we watched civil rights speeches from our living room. Mom picked WHYY because it told the truth, and it helped me make the right decisions.” Bruce C. Wiley grew up in the North Philadelphia neighborhood of Brewerytown in the 1960s; his mother, Voleta McNair, a seamstress, encouraged him to pursue music, athletics, and volunteerism.
"I appreciate that WHYY is commercial free and that it benefits the community with its objective reporting. The diversity of content is excellent. When I turn WHYY on, from PBS NewsHour or The New Yorker Radio Hour, I’m always surprised by the topic and learn something new. I like that it’s always a different point of view."
