Are you interested in supporting ARTS San Antonio beyond your annual gift while postponing out-of-pocket expenditure? Please consider a few popular options:

Charitable Bequests​

The simplest way to make a Legacy Gift is by naming the 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 IRAs, and 401(k), 403(b), Keogh plans, allow individuals to defer taxes on a portion of their income until the assets are withdrawn during retirement years. After a person's death, however, these accounts often are exposed to taxes. By naming ARTS San Antonio as a beneficiary of 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 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. Consult your tax, legal or financial advisors concerning the specific details and consequences of making a Legacy Gift to ARTS San Antonio and to help you determine which approach is best for you. Please let us know how we may be of assistance.

Working together, we will strengthen the cultural life of our community. For more information, contact
