Additional Ways to Give


Plan a Gift

You can make a gift that will benefit our beloved art form and its artists for generations to come. Leave a legacy gift to PAS through gift planning. The simplest and most common planned gift is a bequest to PAS in your will. You can also designate PAS as the beneficiary of your retirement plan or of a life insurance policy. Contact Joshua Simonds at (317) 974-4488 if you are interested in planning a gift.


Contact Your Employer About a Matching Gift

Many employers will match your gift, thereby doubling or tripling your impact on PAS. Check with your employer to see if your company offers a matching gift program. Often times, you will be required to submit a form to your employer with your donation amount and the date you made your gift. It’s a simple process that can make a big impact!
