Planned giving is “philanthropy for all of us” and the economic and tax benefits associated with it can make it affordable and attractive to people from all walks of life. You can make a legacy gift that costs nothing today and may even ease estate tax issues for your loved ones.

Planned Giving is purposely designating money or other assets that will come to Charleston Jazz through:

  • A bequest in your will or trust (see language below)
  • Life insurance
  • Retirement assets such as a 401K or 403B
  • Stocks or other personal property

Legacy gifts on the part of our donors help us ensure that Charleston Jazz performances and outreach programs will continue well into the future. These forward-looking forms of support are critically important for the sustainability of our organization.  More vitally, they are a gift of joy, discovery, and hope to the generations that follow. 

We are proud to honor our planned giving donors with membership in the Jack McCray Society.

Please consult with a financial or estate planning professional to understand the implications of a gift for your particular circumstances and goals.

For any questions or to express your intention to make a planned gift, please contact our Executive Director, Tatjana Beylotte by phone at 843.822.0126 or by email at [email protected].
