PLANNED GIVING

Leave a lasting legacy that helps ensure Porchlight Music Theatre’s future. Join the Directors Circle.

An excellent way for you to support Porchlight Music Theatre’s mission and special role as Chicago’s home for music theatre is to leave us a bequest in your will, living trust or with a codicil. One significant benefit of making a gift by bequest is that it allows you to continue to use the property you will leave to charity during your life. Another benefit is that you are able to leave a lasting legacy and tribute to your generosity.

If you have included Porchlight Music Theatre in your estate plans, please download The Bequest Notification form and send us a copy (4200 W. Diversey Ave. Chicago, IL 60639).

Bequest Notification Form

Types of Bequests

Check out the various ways by which you can make a bequest to Porchlight Music Theatre.

Specific Bequest. A specific bequest involves making a gift of a specific asset such as real estate, a car, other property or a gift for a specific dollar amount. For example, you may wish to leave your home or $10,000 to Porchlight Music Theatre.

Percentage Bequest. Another kind of specific bequest involves leaving a specific percentage of your overall estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 20% of your estate to Porchlight Music Theatre.

Residual Bequest. A residual bequest is made from the balance of an estate after the will or trust has given away each of the specific bequests. A common residual bequest involves leaving a percentage of the residue of the estate to charity. For example, you may wish to leave 25% of the residue of your estate to Porchlight Music Theatre.

Contingent Bequest. A contingent bequest is made to charity only if the purpose of the primary bequest cannot be met. For example, you could leave specific property, such as a vacation home, to a relative, but the bequest language could provide that if the relative is not alive at the time of your death, the vacation home will go to Porchlight Music Theatre.


Bequest Benefits

A bequest is generally a revocable gift, which means it can be changed or modified at any time. You can choose to designate that a bequest be used for a general or specific purpose so you have the peace of mind knowing that your gift will be used as intended. Bequests are exempt from federal estate taxes. If you have a taxable estate, the estate tax charitable deduction may offset or eliminate estate taxes, resulting in a larger inheritance for your heirs.
