Planned Giving

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.

Ways to Give

There are several different ways to make a planned gift to Pacific Northwest Ballet. We will be very happy to work with you and your advisers to determine which of them may be right for you.

Retirement Plan Gifts
Life Insurance Gifts
Charitable Gift Annuities
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable Lead Trusts
Outright Transfers of Property
Bargain Sales
Retained Life Estates in Residences and Farms

Révérence Society

Signaling the end of a ballet class or performance, a révérence is an elaborate curtsey or bow performed by a dancer to show their respectful admiration for the instructor, accompanist, or audience. As our way of showing respect and gratitude to those generous donors who remember PNB in their estate plans, we have formed the Révérence Society. We know that by providing for deferred gifts, including bequests, beneficiary designations, charitable gift annuities, and charitable trusts, these donors have found a place in their final arrangements for PNB alongside family, friends and other loved ones. For this, we are very grateful.

Révérence Society members receive the following behind-the-scenes benefits:

Invitation to the Annual Révérence Society Luncheon & Performance

Invitations to 6 Opening Night dinners (excludes cost of dinner)

Invitations to 3 select Studio Rehearsals

Invitations to 4 select Dress Rehearsals

Invitation to the Board of Directors’ Annual Meeting

Recognition in Encore, PNB’s performance program

Personalized ticketing assistance

We invite you to consider your own legacy gift and to become a Révérence Society member. If you have already included Pacific Northwest Ballet in your estate plan, please let us know. It would be our great pleasure to welcome you to the Révérence Society and you may start enjoying member benefits.
