Legacy gifts offer a thoughtful and lasting way to honor and remember a family member or friend, while benefiting the orchestra for years to come.
WHAT IS PLANNED GIVING? Planned gifts, such as making a bequest through a will or trust or establishing an annuity, can be a great way to provide support for the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra in the future. After making provisions for you, your family and those closest to you, a legacy gift to the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra will have a meaningful impact on future generations. Such gifts may also be eligible for important charitable income and/or gift or estate tax deductions. The funds received from planned gifts support the WSO’s long-term stability and may also be designated to help build our endowment fund.
The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra encourages you to contact your financial or estate professional for legal advice.
