Leaving a gift to Youth Music Monterey County in your will or by beneficiary designation is a great way to assist in building skills for life in the next generation through music.

How You Benefit

  • You will be remembered as someone who provided happier, more productive lives for children through their pursuit of music.

  • You decide how much to give and retain control of your assets during your lifetime, so if circumstances change, you make adjustments to the gift as needed.

  • Your gift costs you nothing now.

  • You are able to give your gift anonymously.

  • You may choose to leave the gift in memory or honor of someone who inspired your value of music. 

Choose your unique way of giving:

  • Gift by designating YMMC as beneficiary of an account

  • Retirement accounts

  • Life insurance policies

  • Certificate of Deposit

  • Donor Advised Funds

  • Bank or brokerage accounts

  • Charitable Gift Annuity

  • Bequests

Make the Most of Your IRA

  • If you are over age 70-1/2, you can save on income tax by making direct donations to charities, such as YMMC, from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

Gifts in Your Will

Taking care of your family first is most important, but you might want to give a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or name YMMC as a contingent beneficiary next in line after your loved ones.
