Support Us – Planned Giving

Planned Giving

Thank you for considering a lifetime gift to Composers and Schools in Concert. We understand what a momentous decision this is, and we are honored that you are considering our organization for such a gift. We are interested in collaborating with you, discussing your individual needs, and pursuing your vision.

Here are a few examples of planned giving scenarios.

  • Cash Gift – Composers and Schools in Concert accepts cash contributions, but those who want to ensure their contribution has lasting impacts on the organization can specify that their cash contribution be allocated to a board-designated Executive Director’s Fund.
  • Stock Options – You can donate your share holdings. Composers and Schools in Concert will either include the share holdings in the investment portfolio or present them to the issuing company for redemption and invest the sales income into the Endowment Fund.
  • Charitable Living Trust – The establishment of a living trust allows you to control your assets now and in perpetuity. You can place any asset – cash, stock, or real estate – into a Charitable Living Trust. The contribution is invested by your trustee and in accordance with your investment preferences to pay you income for the rest of your life, and if you wish, pay your heirs for life or for a limited term. After the death of any and all beneficiaries the trust passes to Composers and Schools in Concert.
