Bequests & Planned Giving

Remember Theatre Harrisburg in your Will or other estate plans.  By remembering Theatre Harrisburg in your estate, you can enjoy the benefit of knowing your legacy will provide for generations to come.

A planned gift may also provide tax advantages for your estate while allowing you to share your passion for live theater. Theatre Harrisburg suggests that you consult with your attorney or financial advisor to arrange a planned gift through a bequest, life insurance, annuities, trusts, IRAs or other planned giving arrangements.

Bequests Through Your Will or Trust

A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways to make a lasting gift to Theatre Harrisburg. Charitable bequests can dramatically reduce estate and inheritance taxes, and they can be for a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or whatever may remain after all other bequests are satisfied.

Gifts of Retirement-Plan Benefits

Retirement-plan benefits left to children, grandchildren, and other beneficiaries are subject to both income tax and estate tax. Donating retirement benefits will allow you to make a significant gift and use 100% of your money for the benefit of the Theater.

Gifts of Life Insurance Policies

By designating a charity as the beneficiary, some donors give life insurance as a gift when they find that they no longer need the coverage. Life insurance gifts enable donors to make a much larger gift than they thought possible, and in most cases a gift of insurance does not significantly reduce their current stream of income.

These are just a few of the options for making a planned gift. Your lawyer or tax advisor can assist you in deciding which giving option is the most appropriate for your circumstances and wishes. When designating Theatre Harrisburg as the beneficiary of any type of gift, please use our official title and address:

Theatre Harrisburg
513 Hurlock Street
Harrisburg, PA 17110
