How can I make a planned gift?
A planned gift is more than a donation; it is an investment in the next generation of National Repertory Orchestra musicians and the future of classical music. There are many ways to support the National Repertory Orchestra with a planned gift.
Gifts for the future
Future gifts let you retain the assets you need during your lifetime and allow you to give generously in the future:
- Remember the NRO in your will or living trust. See Gift Language.
- Designate the NRO as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), bank or investment account, or other assets.
- Make a gift of life insurance
To notify the NRO about your gift intent, please use the Notification Form.
Gifts that provide tax benefits now and lifetime income
Create a charitable remainder trust: Your irrevocable trust will make payments to you or other beneficiaries for your lifetime or a specified term, after which the Orchestra receives the remainder.
Gifts for the future
Make a gift of cash or appreciated securities such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, which can minimize capital gains and/or income taxes for you. You can give to either:
- The Annual Fund, for the Orchestra’s ongoing operation or education mission.
- The Endowment, where it will be held in perpetuity with earnings directed toward the organization’s education mission.
For gifts of stock, please refer to our wire transfer instructions.
Harriett Bobo’s Transformational Gift
Harriett Bobo’s love for music was contagious. Rarely did she miss an opportunity to attend a concert, masterclass, or seminar. Her desire to help others was even greater.
The notion that she could impact young, professional musicians’ lives through education inspired her to participate, volunteer and contribute to the NRO every year while providing a planned gift.
While Harriett surely never imagined passing away at age 75, she had in place an estate planning provision that proved to be transformational for the NRO. Her gift will not only continue Changing Lives Through Music now and for future generations, it will also be her lasting legacy.
