Learn About Planned Giving


You can leave a lasting legacy of music!

The symbol at the heart of our logo is the fermata. When placed above a note, a fermata tells a musician to sustain that single, clear note indefinitely. Your endowment contribution can ring as long as that note when you join the Encore Society. 

The Encore Society was established by the Alabama Symphony Orchestra to recognize individuals who make gifts to the ASO through their estate plan by bequest or other planned gift. A planned gift to the ASO allows you the opportunity to share your love and passion of orchestral music for many years to come — while also giving your estate numerous tax advantages and other benefits. 

Your planned gift will enable the Alabama Symphony Orchestra to continue to enrich the lives of Alabama citizens, of all ages, through its artistic and educational programming for generations to come. Most importantly, planned gifts will insure the long-term financial strength of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and enable our state's orchestra to continue offering the finest in performances and educational programs for future generations. 

For more information on joining this very special group of supporters, please contact Nicole Williams at 205-314-6958 or via email.
