The COVID-19 pandemic has inflicted unprecedented hardships on our country, our friends, and our families. As we face an uncertain future together and work to adapt and overcome, we’d like to ask those of you who can to consider a gift to help PostClassical Ensemble through this challenging time. No amount is too small. Thank you.

Make an IRA Charitable Distribution

If you have an IRA and are 72 years old or older, you may give a distribution from your IRA directly to PostClassical Ensemble without having to pay the federal income tax. This is a simple, no hassle way to support PCE. We can provide you with a free template ask letter that you may use to request a charitable distribution from your individual retirement account.

Request a Legacy Gift

Either by making a gift through your will or living trust or creating a charity remainder annuity trust (CRAT), you can support great music for years to come. Talk to your estate planning attorney about simple wording you can include in your will or living trust. For example:

After fulfilling all other provisions, I hereby give, devise and bequeath to PostClassical Ensemble (Federal Tax ID: #46-0465103) a charitable organization duly incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia and located at 5104 44th Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20016, _____% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate [or $____ if specific amount].

Always seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor
