Support through a planned gift strengthens the Winston-Salem Symphony and creates a lasting legacy for generations to come.
Whether by will, trust, or life income plan, during life or at your death, your charitable gift can be structured to provide many financial and philanthropic benefits, both now and in the future:
- An increase in your current and future annual income
- An income tax deduction that can reduce current income taxes and thereby increase your disposable income
- Avoidance of the capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated assets as part of your gift transaction
- Reduction of your taxable estate through an estate and gift tax deduction
- Recognition of your support now and in the future in Winston-Salem Symphony communications and publications
- The confidence that you’ve helped build a lasting cultural legacy in Winston-Salem
