Planned Gifts

Pennsylvania Ballet's planned giving programs enable donors to make substantial gifts to the Ballet in ways that complement their personal financial planning. A planned gift to the Ballet can help donors generate lifelong income, obtain significant income tax deductions, reduce or eliminate estate taxes, and convert low-yielding assets into a higher income stream at a reduced capital gains cost.
 
The Edwin E. Tuttle Society
Pennsylvania Ballet established its first planned giving society in honor of Edwin E. Tuttle, former Trustee and Board Chair. The Edwin E. Tuttle Society honors all individuals who have included the Ballet in their estate plans with similar vision and foresight. Some donors have agreed to make irrevocable bequests to the Ballet, while others have simply let us know that the Ballet is a beneficiary of their estate. Members will be invited to special events and will also be recognized for their support in Pennsylvania Ballet performance programs and other publications.
 
We are happy to meet with donors and their financial advisers to help tailor giving strategies that best meet donors' needs. For more information on The Edwin E. Tuttle Society or to discuss planned giving options, please contact Jane Kamp, Director of Development, at 215-587-6912 or jkamp@paballet.org.
