Are you interested in supporting ARTS San Antonio beyond your annual gift while postponing any out-of-pocket expenditure? 

Consider a few popular planned giving options:


Charitable Bequests

The simplest way to make a legacy gift is by naming ARTS San Antonio in your will. A bequest is a meaningful way to support our mission without affecting your cash flow during your lifetime. Your attorney can include a gift to ARTS San Antonio when you prepare or revise your will, or you can add a codicil at any time.


Retirement Plans

Certain retirement plans, such as an IRA, 401(k), 403(b), or Keogh plan, allows individuals to defer taxes on a portion of their income until the assets are withdrawn during retirement years. However, after a person’s death, these accounts often are exposed to taxes. By naming the ARTS San Antonio as a beneficiary of either all or a portion of these retirement assets, you can leverage the full power of the assets as the donated portion would not be subject to tax. This strategy gives you the ability to leave a large charitable contribution, while freeing up other assets for your heirs.


Life Insurance Policies

An easy and straightforward method of philanthropic giving is through life insurance policies. ARTS San Antonio welcomes gifts of life insurance when the policy is paid in full and we will be named as the owner and the irrevocable beneficiary of the policy. You should consult your tax, legal or financial advisors concerning the specific details and consequences of making a legacy gift to the ARTS San Antonio and to help you determine which approach is best for you. Please let us know how we can be of assistance.


Working together, we will strengthen the cultural life of our community. For more information, contact: or call (210) 226-2891.
