Help ensure that the beauty and power of classical music continues to enrich future generations in our Community

Please consider making a long-term investment in music by including the SCSO in your estate plans or by contributing to the SCSO Endowment that:

* plays a vital role in providing the financial support and stability that further our mission of serving and shaping the cultural life of our Community

* provides a steady, stable, and predictable revenue stream that allows us to plan for our enriching programs

Three Simple Ways To Give


One of the most popular ways to make a planned gift involves the simple placement of a clause in your will or revocable trust making the SCSO a beneficiary.

Retirement Plans

Making a gift of a qualified retirement plan asset such as an IRA, 401(K), 403(b), Keogh, or other pension plan is an ideal way to benefit the SCSO and receive significant tax savings.

Life Insurance

You can use life insurance to make a gift to the SCSO by naming the SCSO as the irrevocable [i.e., you cannot change the terms in the future] owner and beneficiary of a surplus, paid-up life insurance policy.
