Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Foundation

The Huntsville Symphony Orchestra Foundation is a separately incorporated non-profit, tax-exempt foundation governed by a Board of Directors. Its exclusive purpose is to support the HSO. Donations to the Foundation may be made by an outright gift of cash or securities, or through a planned gift. Examples of planned gifts include:

  • a gift of cash
  • a bequest in a will (a percentage, a specific amount, or a residual)
  • a charitable remainder trust
  • a life insurance policy, gifts of real estate, or
  • the residual value of a retirement account such as an IRA or 401(k) plan

Anyone, regardless of net worth, can make a planned gift of any size. Planned gifts can financially benefit the donor in his or her lifetime through tax savings and support the HSO beyond a lifetime. All gifts to the Foundation are invested in a judicious manner and are regularly monitored by the Board of Directors.
