Encore Society Planning for the future

The Human Race Encore Society represents the enlightened concern of individuals who have felt and seen the impact of The Human Race on audiences, young and old alike. It underscores the importance of our mission and embodies the desire to see The Human Race continue to influence and educate our community.

Established by supporters to help provide long-range financial stability for the organization, The Encore Society does not seek current gifts, but request that you consider including The Human Race in your long-range financial plans. By doing this now, you may be surprised to find tax planning can increase the value of your estate, enabling you to do more than you might ever have dreamed possible.

This special group of theatre enthusiasts believes in our mission and recognizes the cultural and educational significance of our work. They have already pledged their support to help insure we’ll be here to provide quality, insightful programming well into the future and invite you to join them in their efforts by becoming a member of The Encore Society today. And all you need do is let us know of your intension to include The Human Race in your estate planning for a gift of any size. We don’t need to know details, only that you care enough to become involved. Then you can be counted among the loyal members of this extraordinary group who will be leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come.
