Whether supported through an outright gift or planned gift, all of The Washington Ballet programs are made possible through the generosity and commitment of people like you. A planned gift to The Washington Ballet helps to ensure the future of the services and programs we provide in your community and worldwide and may further your financial goals.
Planned gifts include gifts through your will, charitable gift annuities, gifts of life insurance, pooled income funds and charitable trusts.
Many of our donors make charitable gifts by naming The Washington Ballet as a beneficiary in their wills.
You irrevocably transfer some assets to The Washington Ballet now and in return, you (and a survivor, if you wish) receive income for life.
Some of our donors no longer need their life insurance that was purchased years ago to provide for children or other family members, and donate the policy to The Washington Ballet.
Individuals with very large estates can use a charitable lead trust to benefit The Washington Ballet and pass principal to family members with little or no tax penalty.
Your IRA assets will be transferred to a charitable remainder trust; the trust will provide life income to the beneficiary and an eventual gift to The Washington Ballet.
