Cash, securities, real estate and personal property may all be given to Symphony Space through your will. An example of a provision for an unrestricted gift, which would be used by Symphony Space wherever it is most needed, would read as follows:
"I give and bequeath to Symphony Space ___% of my estate (or $____)."
An example of a provision for a restricted gift — which Symphony Space may used only for the purpose you designate and may include principal, income or both, follows:
"I give and bequeath to Symphony Space ___% of my estate (or $____)* to be used for the following: [your purpose here]."
You may also specify any real property that could be sold by Symphony Space to support the purpose you designate.
Please keep in mind that restrictions on gifts may sometimes outlive their purpose, for example, a particular performance series may not be offered in some future year. If you wish to make a restricted gift to Symphony Space, we ask that you discuss your gift in advance with Symphony Space's Director of Development.
We encourage you to seek legal counsel before designing any type of will provision.
