Planned Giving

Planned Giving Contact Form

Planned giving combines financial, estate and charitable planning—with a focus on meeting your personal goals and needs. It enables you to give from your assets, often with significant tax benefits. Planned giving can help you generate predictable income during your lifetime and preserve your wealth for your family while sustaining the Friday Morning Music Club for generations to come.

As you plan your estate, we hope you will keep the Friday Morning Music Club in mind. FMMC has been fortunate to have loyal members and patrons who have included us in their estate plans over our more than 130 year history. These gifts significantly help us maintain our financial stability, expand our programs, grow artistically and administratively, and ensure the accessibility of the music we present.

If you choose to include FMMC in your estate plans, please provide your attorney with the following information: 

Ways to Give:

The Legacy Society

When you notify us that FMMC is included in your estate plans, you will automatically become a member of The FMMC Legacy Society, established to recognize and thank those who have included FMMC in their estate plans. Regardless of the planned giving technique used or the size of the gift, we are incredibly grateful to be remembered in this way.

Informing FMMC about your intentions also allows us to celebrate your generosity and thank you during your lifetime and could inspire others to make a similar commitment. Legacy Society members receive lifetime recognition in all of our concert programs and receive invitations to our annual donor event.

Unless otherwise indicated by you, all gifts received by the Friday Morning Music Club will be used for the purposes of our Endowment Fund.

We encourage you to seek legal and financial counsel to review the gift to be donated and the advisability of the gift considering your overall estate planning. FMMC staff, board members, and volunteers do not provide legal or tax advice to prospective donors. We welcome the opportunity to work with you and your advisors in planning a gift that suits your particular goals and needs.
