Legacy Giving

Will and Trust Bequests

A legacy gift demonstrates your commitment to the SLSO, to the next generation of music lovers, and to your community. With a gift through your estate or will, you can give more than you thought possible while generating a charitable estate tax deduction.

You can provide for the SLSO in your will or trust by naming the SLSO as a beneficiary of a specific amount, asset, or percentage of your estate.

Bequest language that you and your attorney might want to employ:

I give and devise to the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (Tax ID #43-0666769) located at 718 North Grand Blvd. St. Louis, Missouri 63103,…

There are also several ways you can include the SLSO in your will. You can designate:

  1. A specific gift amount
  2. A percentage of your estate
  3. The remainder, or a portion of the remainder, of your estate after you have taken care of your heirs and loved ones
  4. Specific property (stock, real estate, etc.)

In addition to discussing your bequest, will or trust with your own advisors, we encourage you to contact our Planned Giving office to discuss language specific to your bequest, as well as other planned giving strategies that may fulfill your charitable giving objectives. Documenting and informing us of your bequest helps us count on your gift in our long-term financial planning.
