A bequest is the easiest and most meaningful way to provide for Seattle Opera's future. A bequest is a gift made through your estate. It may be directed by will or through an outright trust distribution. It may be a specific dollar amount, a percentage of the estate, or a remainder after other distributions have been made. You may also choose to restrict the bequest to benefit one of the Opera's special projects, such as the Ring or the Young Artists Program.
We would be more than happy to supply you with sample bequest language you and your estate planner can use to include the Opera in your plans. This information is free and in no way obligates you to make a bequest to the Opera.
If you have already provided for Seattle Opera in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may acknowledge you as a member of The Encore Society and invite you to the next reception.
