Reverberating Results

Have you ever felt moved during a concert and wanted it to never end? Do you hope your children and grandchildren, neighbors and friends will have exposure to cultural opportunities similar to your own? Do you believe in the power of the arts enhancing community? Would you like to give toward something powerful, but simply can't see a way to afford it?

Psst... let us fill you in on a secret. There are ways to support the Sarasota Orchestra that won't affect your current lifestyle or your family's security. Not even one little bit.

To find out how to make a gift to the Sarasota Orchestra through a will, retirement, securities, insurance, real estate or property, contact Jocelyn Udell, Director of Donor Engagement, Leadership Giving, at (941) 487-2716 or judell@sarasotaorchestra.org.

We'll walk you through the planning and help tailor a plan perfect for you and your family. Being charitable has become easier, more affordable and comprehensible than ever before.

How it Works

  • It may sound too good to be true, but really it's just too good.

  • Your gift can cost you nothing during your lifetime.

  • Your gift can leave your cash flow and current financial plan untouched.

  • You don't need money to make a gift, you can "buy low and give high" through appreciated securities instead.

  • Your gift will allow you to memorialize someone and see that honor come to fruition in your lifetime.

  • Your gift can be in the form of an asset you no longer need or want.

  • Your gift will free you from many tax obligations, can leverage your existing assets and even provide you and/or your loved ones with a new income stream.

  • Your gift provides you all the other benefits that our cash donors receive. There are many enjoyable strings attached to your contribution.

To establish a planned gift or for more information, please contact Jocelyn Udell, Director of Leadership Giving, by calling (941) 487-2716 or at judell@sarasotaorchestra.org.
