Legacy Gifts

​Leave a lasting legacy of great music!

When you make a gift through your estate, either now or at the end of your life, you provide invaluable support to the Symphony. In addition, you or your heirs may receive various financial advantages, including significant tax benefits.

We hear from music enthusiasts that their gifts to the Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra are given for a variety of personal reasons. Not only do they enjoy coming to concerts of the east side’s only professional orchestra, but they want to continue the orchestral legacy in our community of Bellevue for future generations.

Through a will, life insurance, charitable remainder trust or any other financial plan, you can leave a gift to help the Lake Washington Symphony Orchestra continue its legacy of quality music and education in the community for decades to come. We are here to help.

Everyone who comes to our concerts, including the musicians, staff, and patrons, appreciate all of you who support the Symphony financially. Your gifts aren’t taken for granted and when you are gone you will be missed. By naming the Symphony in your will or on a beneficiary form or in a life-income arrangement, you can continue to support the Symphony long after you’re gone. Your gift would be a lasting memory of your generosity.

Ongoing legacy gifts help to ensure the long-term financial stability and sustainability for the Symphony and protect it from unanticipated economic situations. Legacy gifts also guarantee excellent concert programming, expanded education programs, and the recruitment and retention of the best musicians well into the future.

You can make a difference in the lives of the current Symphony family and the one that follows. Leaving a legacy gift is personal decision based on your own circumstances and ability.
