Legacy Giving

Ensure that TheatreWorks will thrive well into the future by making a Legacy Gift!

There are many vehicles to consider that will help you fulfill your financial, retirement, and philanthropic goals. Among them:

  • Wills and Bequests:Remember TheatreWorks in your will for a percentage of your estate or a specific amount, and provide an important legacy for you and your family. For sample bequest information, click here.
  • Retirement Plans:By designating TheatreWorks as a beneficiary of your retirement plan, you might save your heirs from paying income and estate taxes, while TheatreWorks gets the gift tax-free.
  • Charitable Lead Trusts:Create a useful financial situation for your beneficiaries, while helping TheatreWorks and other charities.
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts:Make a gift that will provide a fixed rate of return for a predetermined amount of time. At the conclusion of the term, the remainder becomes a charitable gift to TheatreWorks.
  • Gifts of Life Insurance:Make a gift of all or part of a life insurance policy and generate an income-tax charitable deduction for yourself.
