HB Legacy Circle

Led by Richard C. Mawe, President Emeritus HB Studio Board of Directors s & HB Legacy Circle Chair, we are pleased to launch our first planned giving program, the HB Studio Legacy Circle, in 2021 with hopeful hearts to strengthen the institution’s future. We invite you to join the Circle and help us continue to realize the dreams of our founders, Herbert Berghof and Uta Hagen.

 There are many kinds of legacy gifts that you can make to HB Studio as a  non-profit organization, all with varying tax benefits, such as designating a part of your estate or remembering HB as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy.

If you are interested in learning more about the many legacy gift options available, we advise speaking with your financial advisor. In the meantime, it is simple to make a pledge of future support by becoming a member of the HB Legacy Circle today!
