If you would like to extend your support of the North Carolina Symphony to make a lasting impact, there are several gift arrangements to choose from. With a little planning, you can create a lasting benefit for the North Carolina Symphony after your lifetime. Below are some of the most popular legacy plans to consider.


Remember Us in Your Will

Structure your will to provide for your family first; then include a gift to the North Carolina Symphony. Just a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes.


Charitable Gift Annuities

If you’d like to support the North Carolina Symphony and receive steady payments for life, a charitable gift annuity may be right for you.


Donate Stocks

If you give stocks you’ve owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you’ll qualify for significant tax advantages.


Give Retirement Plan Assets

Consider making the North Carolina Symphony a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less-heavily-taxed assets to your loved ones.


Arrange a Charitable Trust

With a charitable remainder trust, you receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the North Carolina Symphony.
