Planned Giving

You can create your philanthropic legacy at Interlochen through a planned gift. Planned giving vehicles include wills, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder unitrusts, lead trusts, gifts of insurance, retirement plans, or other arrangements.

Many donors make an estate commitment that is unrestricted, so that when the gift is received after their passing, Interlochen can use it for the highest priority at that time. This gives Interlochen the most flexibility.

Donors may also establish an endowment or add to one they have already established in their lifetimes through their estates. When you make an endowment gift, we invest the funds and use the earnings to support endowed scholarships, faculty positions, visiting artist opportunities, programs, and arts areas. A portion of these earnings is reinvested, ensuring that the endowed fund will retain its buying power for years to come. Endowed funds can be named after the donor or their designee. Please contact the Philanthropy Office for information about the current minimum amounts to establish an endowment or visit Endowment Gifts

Donors who have chosen to remember Interlochen Center for the Arts or Interlochen Public Radio in their estates become members of the Interlochen Heritage Society, our giving club honoring those who have made this important investment in the future of Interlochen.
