Grants & Giving

Legacy Society

Support Through Deferred Giving

Deferred or planned gifts provide their benefits at a later date.  In fact, estate-planning gifts are particularly important to the guild right now to insure long-term financial stability of our educational events and programming.

Membership in The Handbell Musicians of America’s Legacy Society is open to anyone making a commitment of support for the guild through his or her will, life insurance policy or other planned giving method.  Members in the Legacy Society receive the following benefits: (1) Listing on the guild’s legacy wall recognizing donors who have made planned gifts to the organization; (2) Recognition in an annual listing in the guild’s publications as a planned gift donor to the organization; and (3) An invitation to an annual Legacy Society recognition event hosted by the Board of Directors and Executive Director.

To join today, download and complete this form and return it to the national office by email or mail to Handbell Musicians of America Legacy Society, 201 E. 5th Street, Suite 1900-1025, Cincinnati, OH  45202.
