Ticket sales only begin to cover the costs of bringing SCE's fine concerts and educational activities to the community.
We rely on the support of individuals, families, businesses, foundations, community organizations, the Connecticut Office of the Arts (which also receives funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency) and government agencies to make "world class music, close to home" possible in Western Connecticut and New York State.

When the time is right for you to include a gift in your will, consider including us.
Every contribution, large or small, is deeply appreciated and will make a difference to the future of the Sherman Chamber Ensemble. By making this lasting commitment, you will be leaving your own musical legacy for future generations to enjoy.
How to leave a legacy to the Sherman Chamber Ensemble
Leaving a gift in your will is easy to arrange and is one of the most flexible ways of giving.
When considering your gift or writing your will, we recommend that you seek the advice of a professional advisor who will be able to provide detailed guidance on the various types of legacy gifts. For example, you may wish to leave a proportion of your residuary estate, a specific sum, or the gift of an asset, such as stocks and shares.
The Sherman Chamber Ensemble is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and a legacy gift could be deducted from your estate before inheritance tax is calculated, thereby reducing the overall amount of inheritance tax payable.
If you have decided to leave a gift to the Sherman Chamber Ensemble in your will, or are considering remembering us
in this meaningful way, we would be delighted to hear from you.
While there is no obligation to let us know your intentions, we would value the opportunity to thank you for your support, and to keep you informed of our work.
