Planned Giving


Give to the Drama League with a planned gift.


The Legacy Circle recognizes the individuals who support the Drama League through their long-term financial plans. By joining the Legacy Circle, you can achieve your own personal financial goals and leave a legacy of support for your community with a planned gift to the Drama League of New York. And we’d like to help you.

Our directors and audience members are guided in the core values of creativity as a powerful engine for change—embracing artistic risk-taking, innovation, and surprise. We actively foster and advance an equitable, inclusive, and diverse environment in our programs and on our team. We seek to inspire through service, give our best every day, and create opportunity for everyone to engage, learn, and grow.

The Legacy Circle acknowledges those special donors who secure the Drama League’s future with their commitment though a planned gift. Some examples:


  • Beneficiary Designations: in your will, life insurance policy, IRA or other retirement plan, U.S. savings bonds, etc.

  • Life Income Gifts: a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust
