Planned Giving - The MARY DAY SOCIETY

Whether supported through an outright gift or planned gift, all of The Washington Ballet programs are made possible through the generosity and commitment of people like you. A planned gift to The Washington Ballet helps to ensure the future of the services and programs we provide in your community and worldwide and may further your financial goals. 

Planned gifts include gifts through your will, gifts of life insurance, pooled income funds and charitable trusts.


Many of our donors make charitable gifts by naming The Washington Ballet as a beneficiary in their wills.
Bequest sample language: I give and bequeath to The Washington Ballet, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Washington, DC, the sum of $_____ (or__ % of my estate; or the property described herein) for its general purposes.

Gift of Life Insurance

Some of our donors no longer need their life insurance that was purchased years ago to provide for children or other family members, and donate the policy to The Washington Ballet.

Charitable Lead Trust

Individuals with very large estates can use a charitable lead trust to benefit The Washington Ballet and pass principal to family members with little or no tax penalty.

Gifts of Retirement Plans

Your IRA assets will be transferred to a charitable remainder trust; the trust will provide life income to the beneficiary and an eventual gift to The Washington Ballet.
