Planned Giving

We would like to thank the following contributors for supporting the legacy of the American Youth Symphony by making a planned gift:

Mr. and Mrs. Herb Gelfand
Dr. Richard Handwerger
Mr. John Liebes
Mr. Steven A. Linder and Mr. Michael Hanel
Mr. Richard Rosenthal and Ms. Katherine Spillar

Make your core values known by making a planned gift to the American Youth Symphony. Members of our legacy society are generous and forward-thinking donors who will support our long-term success and be gratefully remembered.

In addition to supporting our work through your generous cash donations, here are other ways you can contribute to the sustainability of our mission to inspire the future of a timeless art form by sharing exceptional, innovative concerts at no charge to the community that are based on our landmark training of extraordinary musicians ages 15-27. Many of these options are a win-win for you and for AYS. We encourage you to consult with your financial advisor to discuss the tax implications of these options:

  • Bequests
  • Life Insurance Policy and Retirement Assets
  • Life Income Gifts
  • Complex Gifts

Legacy society members become a special part of the American Youth Symphony contributor family. They are also honored with:

  • Recognition in all print and digital materials, including: on our website, in our bi-annual season program books, and digital tribute slideshow (which plays in the lobby at all Royce Hall concerts)
  • An annual legacy society luncheon
