Planned Giving

People who want to leave a legacy or leverage assets to make a substantial gift that they couldn’t otherwise often make planned gifts. A planned gift can be as simple as inserting language into a will. There are also planned giving tools designed to help you and your loved ones avoid capital gains and estate taxes, while making generous gifts to your favorite charities.

If you’re interested in making a planned gift to Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras, or just want to discuss your options, please contact Executive Director Dan Petersen at
or 206-362-2300.

If you would like to include Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras in your will, you can use the following language:

“I give to Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras, a nonprofit corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of the State of Washington and located in Seattle, Washington, or legal successor there to [insert here some amount of money, percent portion of the estate, description of property, or "the sum of money, rest residue and remainder of my estate."], to be used for its general tax-exempt purposes and without other restrictions as to use.”

For information about specific endowments or restrictions, please contact Daniel Petersen. You should always consult with your attorney before modifying your will.
