Planned Giving Opportunities:
Donors who plan future gifts secure the future of Ballet Lubbock by making a gift to Ballet Lubbock in their wills, revocable trusts or other planned giving instrument.
The first step is to notify Ballet Lubbock of your intention to make a gift in a will or other vehicle for planned giving by signing a Planned Giving Letter of Intent.
Next, you should always seek legal counsel in order to make sure that your intentions are clearly and accurately stated, and to avoid unnecessary expense and frustration to your family due to ambiguity in your documents. Although all circumstances are different and vary in levels of complexity, it could be as simple as asking your lawyer to add an addition to your will or amendment to your revocable management trust.
Yes, you can always change your gift. Your Letter of Intent to Ballet Lubbock is not binding.
We welcome to opportunity to retain a copy for our files, but it is not a requirement.
May I designate either a specific amount or a percentage of the estate to leave as my gift to Ballet Lubbock?
Yes, either option is available and your lawyer should be able to explain to you the various options for including Ballet Lubbock in your will.
There is no minimum gift—Ballet Lubbock appreciates and will accept gift designations of any amount.
