Legacy Giving

Planned Giving is your way to provide lasting support for San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory.

By starting the planning process now, you can make a gift that will impact generations of young people through scholarship support, instrument loans, private lessons, conservatory classes, and other special opportunities. You may direct your gift to support any area you like—from conservatory programs to community efforts to early childhood classes.

Join the Legacy Circle at SDYS by making a bequest as part of your estate planning.


Making a Planned Gift to SDYS

Consider Your Assets

Assets like cash, stocks, life insurance policies, bonds, real estate, vehicles, art, and more can be donated to SDYS, and may even provide estate tax benefits.

Ask a Financial Advisor

Please consult with your financial advisor for professional advice on estate planning. If you do not have a financial advisor, we are happy to provide a recommendation.

Leave a Gift in Your Will

Ensure your final wishes are respected by including a gift to SDYS in your will. You may leave a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your assets.

Make a Memorial Gift

Honor a loved one with a memorial gift or endowed scholarship to SDYS.
