A planned gift allows a donor to provide for the BPO without any out of pocket costs. By considering what you want to accomplish by your gift, you will be able to find a planned gift option that will balance what you wish to achieve for yourself, your family and your charitable interests.
The BPO is ready to work with you to determine which approach best meets your needs and interests. Once you determine how you want to proceed, the Buffalo Philharmonic will assist you every step of the way to help carry your plan to fruition.
We Did It!
With the generous support of many of our wonderful patrons, the BPO has successfully raised over $1,000,000 in new planned gift commitments over the last two years. This would not have been possible without the unique match challenge opportunity presented to the BPO chairman of the board Louis P. Ciminelli, via his family foundation. The Louis P. Ciminelli Family Foundation match has been used to have a beneficial impact on the BPO today, as well as to guarantee the long-term viability of the organization.
Upcoming Planned Giving Informational Sessions: February 1, 2013 - Pictures at an Exhibition; April 5, 2013 - Rachmaninoff 3
