Endowment

 

“Our orchestra deserves a great hall and conductor, which we have; outstanding instruments, which many of them have; and financial stability and security, which we are now trying to provide for them.  This is our mission.  They will do the rest.”  

Linda Van Sickle Smith
 

Setting up an Endowment allows you to make a gift that lasts forever and even grows over time. When you make an endowed gift, your contribution is invested with and becomes part of our assets within the Dallas Symphony Foundation. An annual distribution is made for the Symphony’s general purposes or a specific purpose you designate when the endowment is established.

There are also tax benefits to establishing endowments during your lifetime, as well as estate tax benefits when they are established through your estate plans.
