Planned Giving


Your planned gift to the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra will help make it possible to continue to bring major artists to our symphony season each year and to provide music education programs throughout our community. Memorial gifts, endowment gifts, or bequests can make a difference in the CCSO’s ability to present the finest in orchestral music to the people of the Coastal Bend region.

In addition to cash, the CCSO can accept other assets such as real estate, stock, bonds, jewelry, art, IRAs, or even items such as stamp and coin collections, with full tax benefits accrued to the donor. Gifts may be made directly to the CCSO or to its permanent endowment fund at the Coastal Bend Community Foundation.

To explore ways your gift can be made in the most tax efficient manner, contact CCSO Director of Development, Madeline Schmidt, at mschmidt@ccsymphony.org or call 361-882-2717 or your tax advisor. Your generosity will perpetuate the Corpus Christi Symphony Orchestra’s mission of bringing world class artists and music education to the Coastal Bend area.
