The Virtuosi Society
Your commitment today can keep the music playing for years to come. Donors who include Kaufman Music Center in their estate plans ensure the Center's long-term stability. We founded the Virtuosi Society to honor these friends who have committed to making a legacy gift of any size through a number of planned giving options.
Legacy gifts build the Center's endowment, a fund which is invested to provide long-term support to all of the programs at Merkin Concert Hall, Lucy Moses School and Special Music School. As a Virtuosi Society member, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to ensure the future of arts education and the performing arts — beyond your lifetime.
Your Lifetime Membership Benefits Include:
- Invitations to special receptions, events, and concerts
- Public recognition of your membership (unless you chose to remain anonymous)
A deeper involvement with the life of Kaufman Music Center
Ways to Leave Your Legacy
You will find that planned giving is a way to support Kaufman Music Center while benefiting yourself, your family members and your heirs; for example, it offers protection to assets that might otherwise be lost to estate, income, or capital gains taxation.
There are many ways to leave your legacy to Kaufman Center:
- Will bequests
- Gifts of real estate
- Gifts of life insurance
- Lifetime income gifts
- Charitable lead trusts
The Development Department staff is available to answer questions about gift planning or meet with you for a confidential discussion of your estate plans at any time. For more information, or to schedule a meeting, please call 212 501 3350 or email email@example.com.
