Planned Giving

Creating a Lasting Legacy

Generosity comes in many forms, and planned gifts are often the most advantageous way to support the causes that matter most to you. By making a planned gift, you can establish your legacy and help the Foundation continue to inspire and educate by preserving and celebrating the music of the Great American Songbook. This thoughtful act, which has little or no current financial impact on you, may result in the largest and most lasting one-time gift you ever make.


The Legacy Society
The Legacy Society recognizes individuals who have taken the step to support the Great American Songbook Foundation through a planned gift, providing a stable source of income to impact lives for generations to come. Becoming a member is a simple process and there are many different gift options available to you. We are happy to work with you and your advisor to find a charitable plan that honors your philanthropic goals. Learn more about the Legacy Society.
