You Give. You Receive.


There's a way for you to support the Symphony and feel confident that you have dependable income in your retirement years. You can do this with a charitable gift annuity. This type of donation can provide you with regular payments and allow us to further our work. You can also qualify for a variety of tax benefits, including a federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize.

An example of how it works

Dennis, 66, and Mary, 65, want to make a contribution to the Symphony but they also want to ensure that they have dependable income during their retirement years. They establish a $20,000 charitable gift annuity. Based on their ages, they will receive a payment rate of 4.5 percent, which means that they will receive $900 each year for the remainder of their lives. They're also eligible for a federal income tax charitable deduction of $6,129* when they itemize. Finally, they know that after their lifetimes, the remaining amount will be used to support our mission.

*Based on annual payments and a 3.2 percent charitable midterm federal rate. Deductions and calculations will vary depending on your personal circumstances.
