The Sally Lee Legacy Society

Sally Lee (1930 - 2012) The ESO is proud to dedicate the 2013-14 season to Ms. Sally Lee. Sally Lee was an educator in Elgin for over 40 years. She loved the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. We return her love, in memoriam, with this dedication to her lasting memory.

WAYS YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN
LEGACY OF MUSIC

Cash Donation. Simple and common way to make a gift. Deductible if you itemize in year of contribution.

Bequests. Leave the ESO a percentage of your estate. Or make a bequest of money or piece of property to the ESO.

Securities. Give stocks that have increased in value. If owned more than one year, you do not pay capital gains and can deduct the full market value.

Bank Accounts and CDs. Name the ESO as the “payable-on-death beneficiary” of bank accounts or CDs. This passes directly to the ESO without probate.

Retirement Plan Assets. Efficient tax planning option because tax laws often subject these to income and estate taxes upon death. Pass more tax-favored assets to family.

Life Insurance. Rather than cancelling policies no longer needed, name the ESO as your beneficiary, or donate the policy outright.

(This information is not intended as legal or tax advice. For legal and tax advice, please consult an attorney.) The ESO is a 501(c)3 organization and contributions are tax deductible
