Legacy Giving

Thousands of children, students and young adults attend world-class SPCO chamber music performances each year in venues across the Twin Cities at ticket prices $10 or less, with children ages 6-17 attending for free. Through the generous philanthropic support of donors, the SPCO is making it easier than ever for young people to experience SPCO concerts.

Legacy gifts of any size help to ensure that the SPCO’s music continues in our community long into the future. Inspire, challenge, move and uplift new generations of SPCO audience members for years to come by making the SPCO’s transformational performances a part of your legacy.

Popular ways to make a legacy gift to the SPCO include:

  • A bequest of any dollar amount or percentage, or a balance or residue of your estate designated to the SPCO in your will or trust
  • A beneficiary designation to the SPCO of any amount or percentage for your IRA or retirement plan, bank or brokerage account, life insurance policy or annuity
  • Establishment of a charitable gift annuity, which provides immediate support to the SPCO and provides you with dependable income

Contact Katelin Richter Davis at 651.292.4314 or kdavis@spcomail.org for more information or to start a conversation about your SPCO legacy.

We encourage you to consult a professional advisor (such as an attorney, accountant or financial planner) to determine the giving vehicle that will best meet your needs.
