Legal Language

Remembering The Muny in your will or trust is a simple and thoughtful way to become part of Muny history. Our official name and the preferred language for a trust or a will when making a bequest to The Muny is:

“I, <name>, of <city, state, zip>, give, devise and bequeath The Municipal Theatre Association of St. Louis (d.b.a. The Muny) <written dollar amount or percentage of the estate, or trust, or a description of property> for the benefit of The Muny Endowment (a permanently restricted fund), of which the earnings can be used for unrestricted purposes.”

If you wish for your gift to be in support of a designated area, the last sentence would read: “for the benefit of The Muny’s <specific endowment priority area> Fund, of which the earnings can be used for those designated purposes.”

When you include The Muny in your will or trust, please complete and return this Letter of Intent, so we can properly recognize you for your generosity and welcome you into The Henry Kiel Society.
