Planned Giving

Did you know there are creative ways to support The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck? Ways in which The CENTER, you and your loved ones all benefit at the same time?

Such giving techniques are called "planned gifts," because with thoughtful planning, you can create a gift that benefits both you and THE CENTER.

Planned gifts include gifts created through your will, living trust, retirement plan or life insurance policy. Also included are giving tools we call “gifts that pay you back” such as charitable trusts and gift annuities that provide you with an income stream for the rest of your life.

The simplest way to make a planned gift is to include The CENTER in your will or trust. You can make your bequest unrestricted or direct it to a specific purpose. You can also indicate a specific amount or a percentage of the balance remaining in your estate or trust.

Some planned gifts entitle you to an immediate income tax deduction; others provide flexibility during your lifetime and can provide benefits to your estate and your heirs. All of them enable you to create a philanthropic legacy much more meaningful than you may have ever imagined.

We will be pleased to talk with you confidentially about the opportunities for you to support our endowment. We will also be happy to share more information with you about planned gifts and how they can meet your personal, financial and philanthropic goals.

Thank you for your interest and support. The gifts you plan today will create a solid foundation for THE CENTER tomorrow and far into the future.
