Legacy Giving

A legacy gift is a powerful way to enrich lives through music for generations to come.
For many donors, making a legacy gift is an easy and thoughtful way to make a significant future contribution to the VCM and its students, while maintaining financial security for themselves and their family during their lifetime.

Remembering the Victoria Conservatory of Music in your estate plan will help propel the Conservatory into a sustainable organization with an extraordinary future for the benefit of generations of musicians to come.

Ways to plan your gift

There are many ways to give to VCM, it’s about finding a way that feels right to you, and meets your needs.  When planning a gift you can choose an option that provides funds to VCM for immediate use, or you can arrange a plan whereby your gift is received by VCM at a future date.

A Gift in Your Will

Whether or not you already have a will, the easiest way to include a gift in your will is to get professional help from a legal advisor experienced in preparing wills. If you need help finding a suitable legal advisor, we will be very happy to help you. We can also help ensure that your gift will be used as you intend by providing suggested bequest wording for your will, which you can bring to your legal advisor.
