The Harris Theater Legacy Society recognizes and thanks the group of generous individuals who are leaving a planned gift to the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, payable at the time of passing. Legacy Society members have remembered the Harris Theater in their estate plans in many ways—through their wills, retirement plans, life-income plans, and many other creative planned-giving arrangements.

In appreciation for these gifts, Legacy Society members have the opportunity to deepen their engagement with the Harris with special benefits, including:

  • Access to private rehearsals and backstage events
  • Artist meet-and-greets
  • Recognition in Legacy Society member listings in Harris Theater Presents program books
  • Invitations to special donor events throughout the season
