Ways to Give

We hope that if you decide to leave a gift to the Pittsburgh Symphony through your will or trust that you will let us know. Steinberg Society members are invited to an intimate brunch in the Mozart Room each spring for a private musical performance.   

Remember Us in Your Will
The gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime, charitable bequests are made through a simple designation in your will or living trust. And you have the comfort of knowing that you can amend or revoke a charitable bequest if your circumstances change. Sample language is provided here:

I give Pittsburgh Symphony Inc., 600 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA  15222, tax ID #25-0986052, the sum of $____ (or ______% of my estate; or the property described herein).

I give Pittsburgh Symphony Inc., 600 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA  15222, tax ID #25-0986052, the sum of $____ (or ______% of my estate; or the property described herein) to be use for _______________ (specify purpose).

Donate Stocks
If you give stocks you've owned for more than one year that are worth more than when you purchased them, you'll qualify for significant tax advantages.

Give Retirement Plan Assets
Retirement assets can be heavily taxed if left to your kids   Consider making the Pittsburgh Symphony a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.

Arrange a Charitable Trust
With a charitable remainder trust, you can receive income each year (either fixed or variable) from assets you place in the trust. After your lifetime, the balance in the trust goes to the charities of your choice.

Use Life Insurance to Make a Gift
There are several ways you can use life insurance to support the Pittsburgh Symphony. We can help you explore your options.

Gifts of Tangible Personal Property, Real Estate, Oil, Gas, and Mineral Interests, and Bargain Sales
Subject to certain restrictions, the Pittsburgh Symphony may accept these types of gifts subject to review by the symphony's gift acceptance committee.

The PSO strongly advises you to consult your personal financial and legal advisor(s) for information specific to your circumstances. We would also be happy to meet with you and your advisor to help structure a gift that meets your philanthropic objectives.
