Planned Giving

Be a part of the Shreveport Symphony’s future!

As the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra looks to the future, we ask you to do the same. Please consider including the SSO in your estate planning.

To contribute to a lasting legacy, you can consider including us in your will, donating stocks and/or retirement plan assets, gifting real estate or life insurance, and other options.

Estate Planning Options

Remember Us in Your Will
Structure your will to provide for your family first. Then include a gift to the charitable organizations you love. Just a few simple sentences and a meeting with an estate planning attorney are all it takes.

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
Consider making the Shreveport Symphony a beneficiary of a percentage of your retirement plan assets. Then, leave less heavily taxed assets to your loved ones.

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