Why planned giving?
By making a plan to include the Phil as a beneficiary of your estate, life insurance plan, retirement plan or other deferred giving, you will ensure charitable revenue for the Phil for many years to come–making it possibe to keep the music playing for future generations.
Who can make a planned gift? Me?
Anybody can make a planned gift! These gifts are commitments made today that cost you very little or nothing during your lifetime. By making a commitment to give something in the future, you are able to make a significant impact for the Phil’s longterm sustainability without needing to make a cash gift today.

Other gift options
The Phil also accepts stock transfers, a popular way for you to make a charitable contribution and lower your taxable gains; gifts from trusts; and some gifts of personal property and real estate. If you have questions about making a specific type of planned gift, please contact the Philanthropy Office, as gifts of these types tend to be carefully planned and individual.
If you are a donor over the age of 70 ½, you are eligible, and over the age of 72, you may be required to make minimum withdrawals from qualified IRA plans. By gifting some or all of this Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) to the Phil, you may be able to lower your taxable income AND make a significant impact for the Phil–a win-win for everyone involved!
