Planned Giving

Leave a lasting legacy

It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to know that after we’re gone, our gift will continue to benefit future Fellows and provide a lasting legacy.

Charitable Bequest

Charitable Bequest

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest and most flexible ways that you can leave a gift to Music Academy of the West that will make a lasting impact, with many benefits. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to be made to family, friends or Music Academy of the West as part of your estate plan, or you can make a bequest using a beneficiary designation form.

Benefits include:

  • Receive an estate tax charitable deduction
  • Reduce the burden of taxes on your family
  • Leave a lasting legacy to charity

If you have any questions about the best way for you to benefit through a planned gift, please contact our Chief Advancement Officer Jonathan Bishop.
