Planned Giving

The Encore Society recognizes those who have made a charitable contribution to the Schauer Arts Center through a bequest or estate plan. Remembering the Schauer through a planned gift ensures that our programs and services will remain viable for years to come, thus preserving our area’s cultural heritage and tradition of developing, supporting and promoting the arts.

Should you choose to include the Schauer Arts Center in your will or other estate plans, we would be honored to know of your intentions and have you as a member of our Encore Society. You are eligible to become a lifetime member of the Encore Society by completion of the following:

  • Bequest in your will or trust

  • Donation of property

  • Gift of a rollover IRA

  • Gift of stock

Interested in joining? Download the form below then mail or drop off during Box Office Hours.
