The Legacy Society


“One generation plants the trees, another gets the shade.”
– Chinese Proverb 



Kansas City Young Audiences (KCYA) honors every planned gift donor with membership in The Legacy Society. We invite you to become a member of The Legacy Society, created exclusively to honor and recognize people who have helped to continue arts education for the next generation through a gift to KCYA in their wills, trusts or estate plans. Your gift will be recognized publicly, unless you prefer to give anonymously.

Join The Legacy Society


Members of The Legacy Society have expressed their commitment to KCYA through a very special form of financial support. If you have already arranged for a bequest or other planned gift, we would like to honor your support. Please notify us and become a member. If you have not made a decision, please consider KCYA as the ultimate beneficiary of a planned gift.  



Membership Benefits


Your membership involves no dues, obligations, or solicitations, but it does allow us to thank you and recognize you for the plans you have made, and it may inspire generosity in others.


Benefits of membership in The Legacy Society also include acknowledgement at annual luncheons, invitations to special events and a subscription to our e-newsletter.  


The most important benefit you will receive from joining The Legacy Society is the satisfaction derived from making a lasting impact on your community.



Only through learning can the next generation
build our future and shape our community.
