Leave a Lasting Legacy at InterlochenMake a planned gift and benefit everyone involved—yourself, your heirs, and Interlochen. Planned Gifts help Interlochen deal with unknown, future priorities. Many are unrestricted, meaning they benefit the entire institution. We’ll invest these gifts through our endowment and then use the earnings to support projects across campus, including scholarships, Interlochen Public Radio programming, capital improvements, educational programs, and guest artists. For example, one planned gift which was documented 20 years ago and received in 2016 will now be used for the new Music Building. Make a provision today and keep Interlochen innovative in the future.
