PLANNED GIVING

Making a gift of securities, property or other planned gifts to the Orchestra is an ideal way to honour a relative or friend. Remembering the OSO in your will could result in a permanent recognition of your generosity through an endowment such as the chair of a principal player. Naming the OSO as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy will also provide long-term benefits for the OSO.

The OSO, a registered charitable organization, can provide you or your estate with a tax receipt for your gift of cash, marketable securities (now 100% tax deductible) or property.
