Planned Giving

We would like to invite you to consider joining the David Hochstein Legacy Circle. Members of this legacy society have expressed their commitment to The Hochstein School through a very special and important form of financial support – a planned/legacy gift.

These donors have named Hochstein as a beneficiary of their bequest, IRA or retirement plan, life insurance policy, Charitable Remainder Trust, donor advised fund, or in some other way through their estate plans.

By joining our Legacy Circle, you are building on Hochstein’s rich history of philanthropy for future generations. Starting in 1919, Emily Sibley Watson, George Eastman, and other Rochester patrons raised funds to start Hochstein with one simple premise that has endured – excellent music education for all, no matter their age, ability, or socioeconomic status. Today, Hochstein welcomes more than 3,500 people of all ages for music, dance, and therapeutic arts opportunities yearly.
