Planned Giving

Today, many people are looking for opportunities to keep on giving to their favorite arts organizations long after they are gone. This can be accomplished through a plan to gift to BCMS. As part of the long-range planning process, Boston Chamber Music Society has a planned giving circle aimed at taking BCMS into the future. We are grateful to those who have joined the Legacy of Excellence Circle by notifying BCMS that it is a beneficiary in their will, living trust, deferred gift plan or retirement plan.

A strong endowment provides an income stream that allows us to meet our commitments and plan for the future without interruption. It allows us to run a world-class chamber music society, maintain excellent community initiatives, and offer outstanding concerts year-round. BCMS’s endowment funds provide the financial resources to help the Society fulfill its mission.
