Leaving a Legacy

Sempre Society

The Sempre Society

Bequests and planned gifts, also known as deferred gifts, allow people who are passionate about the Symphony and its future to leave a lasting legacy that will benefit generations to come.

The Kansas City Symphony is tremendously grateful to those donors who think about the Symphony when they make their estate plans. If you notify the Symphony of a planned gift provision, including gifts through estate plans or life-income arrangements, we welcome you into The Sempre Society.

Become a member of The Sempre Society and share your passion with new generations of music lovers. Learn more about ways to make planned gifts.

By informing the Kansas City Symphony of your estate plans,

  • You encourage others to leave a legacy
  • You allow us to honor you during your lifetime
  • You make it possible for the Symphony to plan for its future

Members of The Sempre Society enjoy exclusive benefits, such as special events and donor acknowledgement, as well as the financial benefits planned gifts may provide to heirs.

For more information on planned or deferred gifts and how to join The Sempre Society,
please contact Llewellyn Crain, Director of Development, at (816) 218-2646.

Always consult with your attorney and financial advisor prior to making any financial decisions.
