Legacy Giving

Create Your Legacy for the Master Chorale of South Florida

A planned gift stands as a lasting reminder to your children and succeeding generations of the values that are most important to you. When you create a legacy gift at the MCSF, you affirm the importance of supporting live performances of the world’s best choral music.

Achieve Your Philanthropic Goals

Planned gifts give back and help you prepare for your future. They may allow you to take sizeable income, gift, and estate tax deductions and provide favorable capital gains tax treatment. They may provide income for you and your loved ones for life. Planned gifts also allow you to leave a legacy that accomplishes your philanthropic goals.

When you make a planned gift, you become an esteemed member of the MCSF Crescendo Society. With your permission, your name will be recognized in our concert programs and on our website.   

For planned giving questions, please contact our planned giving chairman at plannedgiving@masterchoraleofsouthflorida.org.
