Planned Giving


We invite you to join the Pavlova Legacy Society, a special group of friends who have made legacy gifts to support Boca Ballet Theatre in perpetuity. There are many ways to make legacy gifts. You can put Boca Ballet Theatre in your will, or you can name Boca Ballet Theatre as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy. You can establish a charitable gift annuity or a charitable remainder trust, which are gifts that will support Boca Ballet Theatre and pay you or other designated beneficiaries income for life. Through these and other creative planned giving arrangements, you can help ensure that Boca Ballet Theatre will dance well into the future.

Gifts made by the Pavlova Legacy Society members provide support for the stars of today working with the stars of tomorrow in world-class performances, training programs for students at the School of Boca Ballet Theatre, and community outreach programs dance and movement for at-risk children, those living with Parkinson’s Disease, and the community at large. By including Boca Ballet Theatre in your long-term plans, you can achieve the goals that benefit you and your family, as well as ensure a bright and enduring future for Boca Ballet Theatre. Customized financial and legal advice is usually required to appropriately structure a planned gift. Should you need a referral to qualified firms, Boca Ballet Theatre may be able to assist.
