Planned Giving

The Winston-Salem Symphony deeply appreciates the commitment of those forward-thinking individuals who include us in their financial, wealth, or estate planning and who inform the Development Office of their generous arrangement.

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

For more information on becoming a member of The 1946 Society through your charitable bequest, please contact Philanthropy and Patron Engagement Manager, Tim Storhoff, at (336) 725-1035, extension 225 or by email at
