For many of us, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra will always have a special place in our lives. Your reasons may vary—your joyful recollection of TSO concerts, fond memories of hours of music lessons and practice sessions growing up, a career as a musician, or simply your enjoyment of classical music. Your personal reason may be the inspiration for a very important decision—leaving a legacy gift to your TSO.

Why Consider a Legacy Gift for the TSO?

By making a legacy gift, you will help secure funds for the TSO’s acclaimed performances and vital community and education programs.  

A legacy gift to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) is a powerful and enduring personal statement to the community about the importance of the TSO in your life. Your legacy gift will make it possible for the next generation to see and hear TSO performances well into the future. Making this gift is your lasting personal legacy! 

There are simple ways to make a legacy gift to the TSO —a gift in your will, using the proceeds of a life insurance policy or making the TSO a beneficiary of a registered plan (RRSP, RRIF or TFSA).

If you have already made a legacy or future gift to the TSO, we would love to hear from you!  Please take a few moments to download our Legacy Commitment Form and send it back to us.
