Three ways to become a member:



Making a bequest to the South Carolina Philharmonic is an ideal way to make a significant gift, but retain the use of your assets during your lifetime. Through a will, a family can bequeath a specific dollar amount, a percentage of an estate or a residual value after other gifts have been satisfied. Bequests can be for a designated purpose.

Beneficiary Designations


Naming the South Carolina Philharmonic as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, annuity, or retirement fund [e.g., IRA, 401(k), 403(b)] is a great way to eliminate substantial estate and income tax on these assets at the time of your death.

Direct Gifts of Cash


Legacy gifts of cash, publicly-traded securities, or life insurance cash value from a policy that’s no longer needed can be given to the endowment fund at any time, providing tax-saving benefits for you and immediate benefits to the Philharmonic.
