Encore Society and Planned Gifts
The Encore Society recognizes those individuals who have generously made planned gift commitments to the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra. We offer our most sincere thanks to the special individuals listed below, and to our many other friends who wish to remain anonymous, for their generosity, thoughtfulness and support.
Here are a few simple ways that you can leave your lasting legacy to IPO:
- Name IPO in your will or living trust. You can leave IPO a percentage of your estate, a fixed dollar amount, or an asset such as real estate.
- Name IPO as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.
- Create a Charitable Gift Annuity or a Charitable Remainder Trust.
Please consult an attorney or tax advisor, and call us at (708) 481-7774 to discuss these easy but impactful ways to support the music you love. Our role is to receive, administer and provide ongoing stewardship for your planned gift to ensure that your intentions are honored.

Charitable Gift Annuity
A charitable gift annuity is a simple contract where you agree to make a gift to IPO and we, in return, agree to pay you a fixed amount each year for the rest of your life. Call us at 708-441-7774, and we will be happy to assist you in setting up this gift.
