Planned Giving

The magic of the performing arts comes alive at the Gallo Center for the Arts! It’s a magnificent facility that has transformed the landscape of arts and culture in the Central Valley. Whether you are young or old or somewhere in between, the Center provides programming that will inspire, educate and entertain.

What Will Your Legacy Be?

Now that the Center is here, can you imagine our community without it? Will future generations have the opportunity to experience live performances like we have? With your help they can. By including the Gallo Center for the Arts in your estate plans you can leave a legacy of arts and culture that will touch lives for years to come.

Legacy Circle Benefits

Too often we don’t hear of an estate gift until after the donor has passed. We hope to have the opportunity to talk with you about your legacy and thank you now in a way that is meaningful and appropriate to you.

Optional benefits of the Legacy Circle include:
  • Invitations to special Legacy Circle member events
  • Recognition on the Center’s donor wall in the main Marie Damrell Gallo Grand Lobby
  • Recognition in the Center’s playbill distributed at events
Getting Started
  • Discuss your overall estate plan with your financial advisor. If you don’t have one, the Center can provide a list of recommended advisors in the area
  • Decide how you’d like your gift to be used at the Center – either for a specific program or towards general resources. So that it can be most useful, the Center prefers that the terms of a bequest be as general as possible.
  • Utilize the Center’s set of sample language when adding or updating your bequest
