Begin Your Arts Legacy

Do you remember your first experience at Bass Performance Hall? Maybe watching a Broadway show, ballet or symphony concert, enjoying a guided tour or perhaps, taking advantage of a free, community event. Think about that first experience—and all of the experiences you have had since. Would you like to help ensure that others have the opportunity to experience the power of the performing arts, too?

Joining the Angel Society gives you an opportunity to show your support for Bass Performance Hall and deliver crucial cultural capital for our community, forever. Through a planned gift, you can share the benefits of your life’s work and create a lasting arts legacy for future generations.

Planned gifts can benefit you and your loved ones while achieving your own philanthropic, estate-planning and financial goals. Your gift, in any amount, creates financial stability and keeps Bass Performance Hall the cultural heart of our community. When considering the intent of your gift, the following endowment funds are available: 

    • The Performing Arts Fort Worth Endowment (general operations)
    • The Children’s Education Program Endowment
    • I am interested in establishing a named fund for a specific purpose

In addition, named endowment opportunities are available. 

To start the conversation about establishing your arts legacy, please call Emily Galey, Memberships and Sponsorships Manager, at 817-212-4232 or email [email protected]

Make a Gift in Your Will

You want to leave money to Bass Performance Hall in your will. You also want the flexibility to change your will in the event that life circumstances change. You can do both. This type of donation to the Hall in your will or living trust helps ensure that we continue our mission for years to come. You can do both. In as little as one sentence, you can complete your gift:

“I give ________ (e.g. “Specific Amount” or “$X% of my estate” or “X shares of Google stock”) to Performing Arts Fort Worth (Tax ID# 75-2457270) operating the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, TX, for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

This type of donation in your will or living trust helps ensure that we continue our mission for years to come.
