Planned Gifts

“[ASGT] is a favorite summer tradition. Every year I have enjoyed the performances.”

ASGT has stood tall for 50 years, and we intend to continue entertaining our community for at least 50 more! Including a gift to ASGT in your will is a meaningful way to support the arts in Annapolis and ensure “theatre under the stars” continues well into the future.

Gifts in Your Will or Trust

Gifts in wills are some of the easiest gifts to make, will not alter your current lifestyle, and can be easily modified to meet your changing needs. With the help of an attorney, you can include language in your will or trust to leave a legacy gift to ASGT.

Here is sample language:

Specific Gift

I give and bequeath [$DOLLARS or SPECIFIC ASSET] to Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre, Inc. (Tax ID #52-6078380), a nonprofit charitable organization located at 143 Compromise Street, Annapolis, MD 21401. ASGT shall use the assets in a manner they determine most critical in their mission to provide opportunities for the community to learn about and experience live theatre under the stars.

Residual Gift

I give and bequeath ___% share of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, to Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre, Inc. (Tax ID #52-6078380), a nonprofit charitable organization located at 143 Compromise Street, Annapolis, MD 21401. ASGT shall use the assets in a manner they determine most critical in their mission to provide opportunities for the community to learn about and experience live theatre under the stars.

Contingent Gift

If [name] is not living at the time of my demise, I give and bequeath [the sum of $DOLLARS or all or a % of the residue of my estate, both real and personal] to Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre, Inc. (Tax ID #52-6078380), a nonprofit charitable organization located at 143 Compromise Street, Annapolis, MD 21401. ASGT shall use the assets in a manner they determine most critical in their mission to provide opportunities for the community to learn about and experience live theatre under the stars.

Gifts of Retirement  Funds, Pensions, Life Insurance Policies

Another simple way to support ASGT is to name us as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), other qualified retirement plan, or an unneeded life insurance policy. Just request a change-of-beneficiary form from your plan administrator to get started.

Lifetime Gifts Through an IRA Charitable Rollover

If you’re age 70½ and older, you can donate up to $100,000 annually to charitable organizations directly from your IRA and have the gift count toward your minimum required distribution. Just contact your financial institution to initiate a rollover directly to ASGT.

Donors should consult with their tax advisor regarding the tax benefits of such gifts. Questions for ASGT? Email the Communications Director.
