Leave a Legacy for Portland Playhouse
Help us sustain the work we do by arranging your planned gift to Portland Playhouse. Your generosity will enable the community to enjoy shows at Portland Playhouse well into the future. It will also help us continue to offer education programs that directly benefit students. If you choose to include Portland Playhouse in your estate plans, please let us know so we can thank you personally for making such a vital and important commitment to Portland Playhouse.
Making the Playhouse a beneficiary of your retirement plan is both tax-efficient and as easy as changing the beneficiary form with your IRA administrator and designating Portland Playhouse as a beneficiary.
You can also designate Portland Playhouse as a Life Insurance policy beneficiary. This allows you to provide a large gift and your heirs benefit because proceeds are exempt from estate tax.
You can make a bequest through your will or living trust. Here is an example:
“I, [insert your name], bequeath the sum of [insert monetary sum or percentage of my residuary estate] to Portland Playhouse: 602 NE Prescott Street, Portland, OR 97211. Tax ID # 30-0507198.”
