Dorothy Chandler Society

Dorothy Chandler's legacy for the arts began with an ambitious crusade to raise $20 million to build a performing arts center for Los Angeles. In December 1964, The Music Center opened its doors to the community. Since those early days, The Music Center has become the cultural hub of Los Angeles as an all-inclusive place to connect and unite through the arts and is bringing even more arts experiences to the many communities throughout L.A. County.

Established to honor Mrs. Chandler's dream that the arts live forever, the Dorothy Chandler Society recognizes the generous individuals who have made a legacy commitment with a planned or endowed gift to The Music Center.

The Dorothy Chandler Society provides opportunities to find camaraderie with others who share your passion and love of the arts at special programs and events as well as recognition in The Music Center's donor listings. As a member, you have the pleasure of knowing that your action ensures the future sustainability of The Music Center and a lasting heritage for the community.

Easy Ways to Leave Your Legacy:

  • Include a gift in your will or living trust
  • Designate The Music Center as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or life insurance policy
  • Establish a charitable gift annuity or charitable remainder trust
  • Create an estate note, which is an irrevocable pledge against one's estate
  • Create an endowed fund

We invite you to consider a legacy gift that will create inclusive arts and cultural experiences that champion the diverse voices and communities of Los Angeles for generations to come.
