Estate Planning

The Roanoke Symphony Orchestra now offers estate planning opportunities for you to ensure that the music lives and lasts for future generations. Estate planning techniques can address many tax issues including income tax, capital gains tax, estate tax, and gift tax.

The Gibson Morrissey Society was established to recognize those individuals who have made a commitment to the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra through their estate. Dr. Gibson Morrissey's leadership and vision lifted the RSO from a volunteer orchestra to its current regional status.

To assist our donors in learning about these unique opportunities, we are partnering with planned giving consultants in the community. The RSO is also a member of the Blue Ridge Planned Giving Study Group and is currently participating in the Leave a Legacy Campaign - Leave A Legacy Blue Ridge web site.
