If you are looking to help ensure future excellence, financial stability and longevity at Pacific Northwest Ballet while furthering your own personal objectives, a planned gift is the perfect way to help. Planned gifts can support Pacific Northwest Ballet's Endowment, which allows PNB to create engaging repertories and pursue touring opportunities and education initiatives with confidence.

Planned gifts not only benefit Pacific Northwest Ballet, but they can also greatly benefit you through tax savings. Depending on the option that you choose, you may also receive cash payments that can supplement retirement income or provide support for family members and friends.

Planned giving options include:

  • Bequests
  • Retirement Plan Gifts
  • Life Insurance Gifts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Charitable Lead Trusts
  • Other Arrangements

When considering a planned gift, start by asking how you want to benefit Pacific Northwest Ballet and how you'd like to benefit yourself and others. How would your gift make the biggest impact to both you and PNB? Once the purpose of the gift has been determined, then the practical aspects such as the gift assets to be used, the financial benefits to be secured, and the documentation of the gift's purposes can be worked out.

While a planned gift can often be relatively simple to arrange, you should always seek the advice and guidance of your attorney, accountant, or other appropriate advisor. Pacific Northwest Ballet would be happy to discuss the various giving options with you and your advisors. We also offer the consultation services of nationally recognized experts in planned giving, at no charge to you or your advisors.

The Révérence Society honors the generous donors who make deferred gifts to Pacific Northwest Ballet. If you have already arranged a deferred gift, please let us know. It would be our great pleasure to welcome you as our newest member of the Révérence Society.
