The Roger L. Stevens Society

An Invitation to join the Roger L. Stevens Society

Patrons who express their support for the future of the performing arts in their estate plans through bequests, charitable gift annuities or other deferred gifts for the Kennedy Center’s theater, dance, ballet, jazz, chamber music, VSA or education programs are invited to be a member of the Roger L. Stevens Society (RLS). The RLS is named in memory of our founding Chairman whose passion for the performing arts and unwavering determination made the dream of the Kennedy Center a reality. He was known as “the man who built the Kennedy Center” and his work on behalf of the performing arts not only enriched the cultural life of our nation's capital, but also had a far reaching impact on the arts nationwide.

Please let us know if you have included the Kennedy Center in your estate plans so that we may thank you during your lifetime for your outstanding support and commitment to the programs and performances which bring the arts into the lives of millions of people both in Washington, D.C. and around the country each year.

It is through the great support of our patrons that we can provide the best in performing arts and provide the highest quality of arts education to students, families and teachers around the world for years to come.

Once you complete your estate plans, please fill out our member profile form to let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity by including you in the Roger L. Stevens Society.
