What will your legacy be?

A memorial gift is a contribution to the Pennyroyal Arts Council made as a tribute to a life well-lived. This honor greatly benefits the Pennyroyal Arts Council.


How do you make a Memorial Gift?

Mail a contribution to the Pennyroyal Arts Council, noting that it is a Memorial Gift. Provide the name of the person you are honoring, and the name and address of the closest surviving family member. The Pennyroyal Arts Council will send a personal letter notifying the family of your gift. Consider Memorial Gifts in your own family. You can suggest Memorial Gifts in an obituary with wording such as “Tributes or expressions of sympathy may take the form of a contribution in memory of (name of person) to the Pennyroyal Arts Council, PO Box 1038, Hopkinsville, KY 42241-1038.”


Honorary Gifts

Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, graduation, holiday, retirement, or any special occasion with an Honorary Gift to the Pennyroyal Arts Council honoring your friend, family member, teacher, minister, or co-worker. The Pennyroyal Arts Council will send a personal letter to your honoree telling this special person that you have made a thoughtful gift in his or her name.


Planned Giving

The Pennyroyal Arts Council serves our region by promoting the arts. We manage the historic Alhambra Theatre which is used as a multi-purpose performing arts center in  downtown Hopkinsville. Children who see today’s performances will one day bring their own children and grandchildren here to see entertainers, dance and world-class music. Your donation will sustain the Pennyroyal Arts Council for generations to come.



Consult your financial advisor about the giving options best for you for example:

  • Cash or securities
  • A bequest in your will
  • Planned gifts through financed life insurance. Provide for both your family and the Pennyroyal Arts Council with little to no out of pocket expense
  • Charitable Annuity Trust; deferred gift to the Arts Council after receiving a lifetime annual payment, with favorable tax treatment
  • Donating your required minimum distribution from your IRA to the Pennyroyal Arts Council while avoiding taxes on the distribution
