Planned Gifts

ASGT has stood tall for more than 50 years, and we intend to continue entertaining our community for at least 50 more! If you wish to include Annapolis’ own “theatre under the stars” in your legacy, please read on.

Gifts in Your Will or Trust

Including ASGT in your will or trust is a meaningful way to support the arts in Annapolis and make a significant impact on our organization. These gifts cost you nothing now and can be easily modified if your situation changes. Plus, a deferred gift may enable you to give more than possible during life.

Should you wish to remember us in your will or trust, 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 __% of my estate or __% 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 easy way to support us with a planned gift is to name ASGT a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k), 403(b), other qualified retirement plan, or an unneeded life insurance policy. Simply contact your plan administrator to request a Beneficiary Designation Form and name ASGT (Tax ID# 52-6078380) as a full, partial, or contingent beneficiary.

Lifetime Gifts Through an IRA Charitable Rollover

Good news for ASGT supporters age 70½+! Every year, you can make your annual gift or a special donation up to $100,000 directly from your IRA, remove the gift amount from your taxable income, and count the gift toward your minimum required distribution. Simply contact your financial institution and ask to initiate a charitable rollover directly to ASGT (Tax ID# 52-6078380).

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