Planned Gifts

California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) was founded through the foresight and planning of Walt Disney. The beautiful campus and programs are a testament to the power of the planned gift and a well-managed endowment.

CalArts Legacy Circle

The CalArts Legacy Circle recognizes and honors friends and members of the CalArts community who have thoughtfully provided for the Institute’s future. By including CalArts in your estate plans, you are ensuring that we will be able to build upon the strength of its faculty, students and alumni and education programs and remain the premier arts school of its kind. To become a member of the CalArts Legacy Circle you need to notify us that your will or trust or life income arrangement provides for CalArts.

CalArts offers many planned giving opportunities all of which can be tailored to meet your specific financial and estate planning needs. A planned gift to CalArts offers many advantages, including the
opportunity to:

  • Increase current income to yourself and/or spouse or family;
  • Convert low-yielding or non-income producing assets into lifelong income;
  • Reduce or eliminate capital gains and/or estate tax liability;
  • Enjoy a significant income tax deduction;
  • Make a significant donation to CalArts and impact those programs you care most about.

Information is available which outlines how to include CalArts in your will or trust, the benefits of a charitable remainder trust, how to name CalArts as the beneficiary of an insurance policy or retirement plan, and how to make other life income gifts.

All inquiries are confidential and without any obligation on your part.
For further information, please contact Courtney McIntyre, Director of Major and Planned Giving at 661.222.2743 or via e-mail at cmcintyre@calarts.edu.
