Planned Giving

The Fiorello LaGuardia Society

By including City Center in your long-term financial plan, you ensure that City Center’s stage hosts dynamic performances in perpetuity, building the bridge from this generation of performing arts lovers to the next.

Donors who provide for City Center through deferred giving with options such as bequests, life insurance, retirement plans and real estate become members of the Fiorello LaGuardia Society. Founded in 2007 under the patronage of Anne Strickland Squadron, the LaGuardia Society acknowledges those special friends who secure City Center’s future with their commitment today.

Planned Giving allows individuals to tailor special gifts that benefit New York City Center now and in the future. These gifts provide the donor with important reductions in current personal income and estate taxes.

If you have already included City Center in your long-term financial plans and wish to make your commitment known to us, we can thank you now for your future support with special events and programs throughout the year.

For more information about the Fiorello LaGuardia Society, please contact Vanessa Wise, Vice President of Development, at 212.763.1203 or
