Planned Giving

Hand On the Legacy of Free Theater to Future Generations 

Planned gifts, such as bequests, annuities, and charitable remainder trusts help ensure the high-quality performances and educational programs MSIP offers today continue to impact communities for decades to come. By including MSIP in your estate plans, or other planned giving vehicle, you help secure the company’s financial future and help ensure our programs continue to grow and thrive over time.  

There are many options for maximizing the impact of your gift, including dedicating it to the Montana Shakespeare in the Parks endowment fund, designating it for a program you are most passionate about, or designating your gift as unrestricted operating funds, allowing MSIP to use your gift where the need is greatest. 

Ways to give: 

  • Bequests 
  • Charitable Gift Annuities 
  • Retirement Plans 
  • Life Insurance 
  • Stocks and Securities 
  • Real Estate 
  • Charitable Lead Trusts 
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts 
  • Will or Trust
