Consider Gifts of Stock
Stock gifts are easy to make, and a great way to remove underperforming stocks from your portfolio without the income tax liability. Simply contact your financial advisor or broker and request that the securities be transferred in-kind to:

PostClassical Ensemble, Inc.
5104 44th Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20016
Federal Tax ID: #46-0465103

Make an IRA Charitable Distribution
If you have an IRA and are 72 years old or older, you may give a distribution from your IRA directly to PostClassical Ensemble without having to pay the federal income tax. This is a simple, no hassle way to support PCE. We can provide you with a free template ask letter that you may use to request a charitable distribution from your individual retirement account.

Request a Legacy Gift
Either by making a gift through your will or living trust or creating a charity remainder annuity trust (CRAT), you can support great music for years to come. Talk to your estate planning attorney about simple wording you can include in your will or living trust. For example:

After fulfilling all other provisions, I hereby give, devise and bequeath to PostClassical Ensemble (Federal Tax ID: #46-0465103) a charitable organization duly incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia and located at 5104 44th Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20016, _____% of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate [or $____ if specific amount].

Always seek the advice of your financial or legal advisor.
