ENCORE! – Legacy Giving

ENCORE! – The Legacy Society of Long Beach Symphony Association

Join ENCORE! today through a planned gift and make an enduring impact on the future of the arts in the Long Beach community.

By planning a legacy gift to the Foundation for the Long Bach Symphony, you ensure the Symphony’s ability to plan the future of orchestral music and education programs for the city and surrounding region. In celebration of our 80th season of providing orchestral music to the region, we are encouraging our patrons to think about our next 80 years. How does the Symphony grow to become what our children and their children need and want?

You can help the Symphony remain essential to the community by planning a legacy gift to our foundation, which was created as an endowment to ensure the Symphony’s artistic quality and continued impact. Gifts to the Foundation for the Long Beach Symphony remain invested in perpetuity and the income provides crucial annual support to Symphony.
