How to Give

Planned gifts have long been an important source of philanthropic support for The Philadelphia Orchestra. Every season the Orchestra benefits from the foresight and generosity of donors who arranged bequests and other forms of planned gifts.

There are numerous types of planned gifts you can arrange to support the Orchestra.

Please contact us to learn more.

Giving may be done directly or through a gift model that can provide tax benefits and even income. Click on a gift model below to learn more.

  • IRA to Gift Annuity Rollover
    You may be looking for a way to help further our mission and enhance your income. If you are 70 or older, you can make a one-time IRA rollover to fund a charitable gift annuity and receive fixed payments for life.
  • Bequest
    Naming the Orchestra as a charitable beneficiary through your will is the most popular and simplest form of planned gift. You may either designate a portion of your estate or a specific dollar amount as a gift to the Orchestra.
    Find general information about making a bequest to support the Orchestra here.
  • IRA Rollover
    An IRA rollover allows people age 70½ and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA. Congress has enacted a permanent IRA charitable rollover. As a result you can make an IRA rollover gift this year and in future years.
  • Beneficiary Designation Gifts
    You can designate us as a beneficiary of a retirement, investment, or bank account, or of your life insurance policy.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
    Establishing a Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) with the Orchestra is easy to do and provides you with an income stream while ultimately supporting the Orchestra's permanent Endowment Fund.
