While you might be surprised by the holiday decor already donning the aisles of your local department store, at Phantom Regiment we are also busy gearing up for a busy holiday season of giving.
As a non-profit organization, our mission of creating life-changing performing arts experiences for young people depends on the generosity of our donors. In the past couple of years, we’ve put a lot of work into ensuring our fundraising programs make investing in our mission easier. For example:
- We revamped our Booster Club, rebranding as Club56, shifting to a year-round model, and adding opportunities for increased engagement with the programs our members support.
- Our Fueled by Phans meal sponsorship campaign now includes ways for groups to crowd-source funds from their peers as well as tiered pricing options for our most popular events.
- We’re investing time and resources into a comprehensive database to ensure that we are keeping our supporters connected to our mission from day 1 to day 10,001.
Today, we’re excited to announce 3 additional opportunities to support Phantom Regiment:
Qualified Charitable Distribution
Individuals age 70½ or older are mandated in taking a Required Minimum Distribution (RMDs) from their tax-deferred retirement accounts including Traditional Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) as well as other employer-sponsored retirement plans. Gifting your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) is one of the most effective means of tax savings available.

The Chevron Society is a planned giving program that ensures the legacy of Phantom Regiment, and all it has to offer, for future generations. Chevron Society members have made or pledged a gift to Phantom Regiment through an estate, trust, will, bequest, IRA beneficiary designation or insurance policy.

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to claim a charitable deduction for the full market value of the securities on the date the gift is made. You can avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation while supporting the mission of Phantom Regiment.
As we prepare for our annual Year-End campaign and the upcoming holiday season, we are excited to bring our supporters new ways to invest in our mission. These three programs are already gaining momentum and we know they will allow for the Phantom Regiment legacy to continue.
