Estate Gifts

Planned Giving Through Your Estate …

… a simple and powerful gift

Remember CMS: Make a Bequest in your Will  

One of the simplest ways to remember the Cosmopolitan Music Society in your estate plans is through your will. You can use simple language to designate your bequest to CMS. 

Gifts through your estate will Be Remembered and help CMS continue to grow and develop excellence in community based choral and instrumental music programs. You will also help ensure that live music continues to be an important cultural element of our community.   

Making a Gift is as simple as including this statement in your will: 

On the occasion of my death, I give ($_____________) or (%________) of my estate to the Cosmopolitan Music Society, an Alberta charitable organization located at 8426 Gateway Blvd NW, Edmonton, Alberta, T6E 4B4.        (Charitable Registration #: 106987407 RR 0001)    

If you are considering leaving a planned gift or bequest to the Cosmopolitan Music Society in your will, we recommend that you speak with your legal and/or financial advisor. 

Your Planned Gift can be directed for use in the following way(s): 

  1. The gift will be used by CMS where it is most needed.  
  2. The gift will be added to the Cosmopolitan Music Society’s Endowment Fund, the funds of which are used to generate annual grants to help fund society programs and services in perpetuity for the long-term benefit of the society
  3. Gifts to CMS can be split by you and directed to support both initiatives; example: 50% to current CMS needs and 50% added in the CMS Endowment Fund for the perpetual long-term benefit of the society. (Please ensure to identify a percentage split for each initiative.)
