You can leave a legacy to ensure that the Paul Taylor Dance Foundation continues its mission to share Mr. Taylor’s dances through performances and educational outreach; provide the financial resources to create new choreography each year; and document and preserve the Taylor repertoire for future generations.
Although cash contributions to the Taylor Foundation are always appreciated, other creative and flexible options can benefit you and the Taylor Foundation. You can help ensure the future of Mr. Taylor’s artistry by creating a trust while you are living or by including his dance company in your will. For more information on these options, please follow the links below:
Bequests: One of the simplest ways to support the Taylor Foundation’s future, a bequest provides a gift for the Taylor Foundation in your will.
Charitable Lead Trust: A charitable lead trust makes payments to the Taylor Foundation during the term of the trust. When the trust is over, its assets are paid to your heirs, to other individuals you choose, or are returned to you or your heirs.
Charitable Remainder Trust: A charitable remainder trust pays income to you and/or your designated beneficiaries for life or for a trust term of up to 20 years. The remainder passes to the Taylor Foundation.
Life Insurance and Retirement Plan Assets: You can support the Taylor Foundation’s future by naming it as the partial or sole beneficiary of your life insurance policy, IRA, 401(K), 403(B) or other retirement plan assets.
Retained Life Estate: You can also designate the ownership of your personal residence and retain the right to live there through your lifetime. You will receive a charitable deduction and retain lifetime use of your home.
