Planned Giving

Sejoon Park, 2008 winner and PianoArts fellow, gives a young student her first piano lesson.


You can share great music for generations to come, make a significant impact on our community, and help young artists preparing for music careers.

• Endowment Gifts

Your gift to an endowment fund will provide stability and a source of income. Established in 2004, the PianoArts Endowment perpetuates the donor’s values. Your gift can be to the general fund or restricted to ensure your priorities.

• Legacy Gift

You can ensure great music for future generations by including PianoArts in your will through a bequest of a designated gift, or a percentage of your estate. For details, phone or write the PianoArts Office. (Contact information below.)

• Gift Planning through Publicly-Traded Stock

Perhaps you have the ability to consider making a donation to PianoArts of publicly-traded stock or mutual funds that have increased in value and have been held for more than one year. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the securities and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the securities. It is a relatively simple process and PianoArts will assist you.

• Join “Key Partners”

Through monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual giving, you can join a support group who ensures that concerts and fellowships for education are available in our community throughout the school year, every season. (For details about education, click here.)

Employer Matching Gifts
Many employers boost the philanthropic giving of their employees through matching gift programs. Please contact your Human Resources Department to find out if your company will match your gift.

Honor Someone Special with a Tribute and Memorial Gift
You can honor a friend or loved one with a gift to PianoArts. You will receive a thank you with tax information and letters are sent to the honoree or the family of those for whom a memorial gift is given. (The amount of your contribution will remain confidential.)
