Planned Gifts - Bequests

A charitable bequest in your will or living trust is a simple yet effective way of providing for PBCC while holding assets throughout your lifetime. When drafting a will, there are various types of bequests for different needs: 

Planned Gifts FAQ

I'm not wealthy. How could I have an estate big enough to make a charitable gift?

Most people are surprised at the total value of their assets when they take into account their home, retirement plans, IRAs, personal property, and investments. After providing for family and friends, it is often possible to plan a charitable gift as well. Gifts such as Trusts or Charitable Gift Annuities can provide a donor with lifetime income, often with a higher return than many other investments.

Planned Gifts

For many choir lovers, donating money during your lifetime isn’t enough. What if you want to continue to help sustain PBCC after you’re gone? 

The Philadelphia Boys Choir & Chorale’s and the Philadelphia Girls’ Choir’s planned giving program allows you to make a difference in ways that complement your personal financial planning. A planned gift can help you generate lifelong income, obtain significant income tax deductions, reduce or eliminate estate taxes, and convert low-yielding assets into a higher income stream at a reduced capital gains cost.
