As the Shaw Festival celebrates our 60th Season, we are pleased to honour and celebrate our bi-national founders – Brian Doherty of Niagara on the Lake and Calvin Rand of Buffalo – with the renaming of our Legacy Program to the Doherty-Rand Legacy Circle. This Circle recognizes generous individuals who provide support for The Shaw through bequests, insurance gifts, trusts and other legacy gifts. Some donors prefer anonymity, and we will respect your wishes if you prefer your gift to remain confidential.
Your charitable bequest will be eligible for a tax receipt
Upon your death, your estate is entitled to a donation receipt for the full value of your bequest, providing a significant tax credit.
US Donors: Bequests and other gifts from US residents are made through the Shaw Festival Foundation, which is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a section 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Your estate will receive a tax letter conforming to IRS requirements.
Plan now for a future gift
There are many practical advantages to making a legacy gift. But, to The Shaw, the best part about making a planned lifetime or future gift is our ability to honour your generosity now!
