Symphonies play a vital role in arts communities worldwide, and that’s especially true here in Seattle.
As the Puget Sound Business Journal (PBSJ) reported recently, a new partnership between Laird Norton Wealth Management (LNWM) and the Seattle Symphony will work to ensure that the Seattle Symphony continues to thrive now and for generations to come.
The partnership aims to strengthen the Seattle Symphony by educating donors on financially-responsible ways to show their support while planning their estates. As PSBJ reports, legacy gifts, which come to the Symphony as part of the donor’s estate plan, currently bring in 6% to 7% of the Symphony’s annual funding from private individuals. Such gifts support the symphony’s artistic and community programs, and also help build its endowment for the future. Read the LNWM Press Release on the partnership here.
