Join the Legends – Planned Giving

Legends inspire us. They’re ordinary people who do extraordinary things. They leave an impression on everyone around them. They find their purpose and lead the way through their legacy.

"Growing up in a family devoted to the arts I knew the importance of funding, sustained funding, for the arts to thrive. Our family wanted to be part of a long-term commitment to the success of the arts center." - Deborah and Michael Sciarrino, Founding Endowment Donors

You can be a Legend. And you can positively impact our entire community by sharing Arts For Every Life® with generations to come.


Join the Legends and leave a legacy by including the Dr. Phillips Center in your estate plans, which costs nothing during your lifetime.

Together, we can help shape the future of Central Florida’s culture and economy. And we’ll continue making the performing arts more accessible—from offering incredible entertainment on a local and international scale, to providing meaningful education programs for anyone from two to 102.

An endowment is the hallmark of a great organization and helps secure its future. When you make a donation to our endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits. Endowment donations are invested, with a portion of the annual income from the investment used to address immediate needs at the Dr. Phillips Center. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support and stability.

Investing in our endowment will allow us to benefit from an irreplaceable source of income. This income will promote quality, stability, productivity, and creativity at the Dr. Phillips Center for years to come.
