Planned Giving at The Hanover Theatre  

It’s a question that’s top-of-mind for many of our supporters. By including The Hanover Theatre in your will, estate plan or retirement planning, you are helping to create a permanent stream of support for our historic theatre, mainstage performances, and programs that serve more than 200,000 people each year. 

There are multiple options for creating a legacy gift to benefit The Hanover Theatre, from a simple bequest or designation of retirement plan assets to lifetime income vehicles. 

Ways to Give

A conversation with your financial planner or accountant is a good starting place to determine the best options for designing a legacy gift. These can include: 

  • Wills and bequests
  • Charitable gift annuities
  • Charitable remainder trusts
  • Retirement plan assets
