Individuals who have made planned gifts to BAM are recognized in the select group of patrons known as BAM Angels.
Please consider leaving a legacy for BAM by making a planned gift.
Planned giving is a valuable opportunity for individuals to tailor special gifts that can benefit BAM, now and in the future. Planned gifts can provide an individual with important reductions in current estate and income taxes, while maintaining or even increasing income from the donated assets involved.
Unless otherwise specified by a donor, it is BAM's policy to apply planned gifts toward its endowment. The BAM Endowment Trust was established in 1992 to enable BAM to take the kind of artistic risks that have become its hallmark and to provide against uncertain times. The endowment helps assure that BAM's programming will be available for many generations of future audiences to enjoy. By including a gift in your estate plans, you become a perpetual part of BAM's artistic mission.
Many vehicles exist to structure planned gifts, including bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, life insurance, retirement plans, and charitable gift annuities. Depending on your goals for yourself, your family, and BAM, one or more planned giving vehicles can be considered. BAM urges you to consult with your legal and financial advisors to determine the most advantageous ways for you to give under current applicable tax legislation.
