Planned Giving

Create a legacy of support for music, the arts, and culture in Windsor and Essex County with a planned gift to the Windsor Symphony Orchestra.

Planned gifts support the long-term stability of the WSO, ensuring the continued mission of the orchestra for future generations. Leave your mark with a variety of planned gift options.

Bequests through a will or trust

Bequests are the simplest way to leave a legacy gift to the WSO. Donors who include the Windsor Symphony Orchestra in their will or trust help sustain the artistic excellence of the orchestra, as well as its many education and outreach programs.

You may arrange for the WSO to receive:

  • a gift of a specific dollar amount, or
  • a percentage of the remainder of your estate after other obligations

A sentence or two is all you need. For suggested language that you can pass to your estate planner, please contact the WSO’s Development Manager, Jeremy Klaver, at jklaver@windsorsymphony.com or (519) 973-1239 ext. 28.

Bequests through a retirement plan or insurance policy

The WSO is also grateful to receive contributions from the proceeds of a donor’s life insurance policy or registered retirement plan (RRSP, RRIF, or TFSA).

It can be as simple as naming the WSO as your beneficiary. Unsure how to move forward? We can help.
