Planned Giving

The performing arts provide some of our most powerful and lasting memories — our first theater performance, a moving concert — moments of great joy, profound sadness and enlightenment.

We invite you to join the Legacy Circle, a recognition society for our donors who have included Des Moines Performing Arts in their will or estate plan. Your gift will help ensure the future of live, professional theater and theater-based education for generations to come. Doing so is easy and meaningful:

  • No cash is required. You can make a valuable gift supporting performing arts for years to come by including Des Moines Performing Arts as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan.
  • You can create a gift that pays you revenue for the rest of your life. We now offers Charitable Gift Annuities.
  • You decide how your money is used. Des Moines Performing Arts offers a variety of endowment opportunities for the proceeds of your gift.

In acknowledgement of your gift, Des Moines Performing Arts offers many benefits, including recognition in publications as a Legacy Circle donor, invitations to exclusive events, and access to the Patron Circle Lounge at the Civic Center during all events presented by Des Moines Performing Arts.

To join the Legacy Circle, complete the Legacy Circle form (PDF) or call (515) 246-2300.
