Planned Giving

A Lasting Impression

For the music that has yet to be performed…
For the passions that have yet to be pursued…
You can help preserve a Twin Cities cultural treasure.

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra makes music that awakens our spirit and builds our community, and it depends on caring and devoted friends to ensure its future. There are many ways to make gifts that have a lasting impact upon the future of the SPCO. Gifts by will and by charitable gift annuities are two fantastic options.

We invite you to further explore these two planned giving options:

  • Maintain a steady income for life through a charitable gift annuity.
  • Explore the difference you can make through a bequest.

The Encore Society

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s Encore Society honors and recognizes those individuals who have thoughtfully provided for the Chamber Orchestra through a planned gift. Membership is offered to anyone who has notified the SPCO of their gift.

Encore Society Members

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra extends its deep appreciation to the members of the Encore Society. Their vision and foresight in planning a gift for the Chamber Orchestra’s future ensures that the SPCO will thrive for generations to come. These individuals have truly created a legacy of music.
