The Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine is at the national forefront of providing music therapy to complement medical treatment. The Center has outpatient programs including services for children and teens with asthma, adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular disease and also for musicians and performing artists. Since 1994, music therapy has been an integral service for inpatient programs at Mount Sinai Beth Israel including pediatrics, neonatal intensive care, maternity, HIV/AIDS, family medicine, pain and palliative care, oncology, spine injuries and emergency and intensive care. Under the leadership of music therapist Dr. Joanne Loewy MT-BC, the Center is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals including music therapists who are trained to offer the most current music psychotherapy techniques in pain management, sedation, end-of-life, wellness and breathing modalities of music and healing. The Center conducts cutting-edge research to support clinical practice, including clinical trials on music therapy with children and teens with asthma and with adults in cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation. Our mission to provide state-of-the-art music therapy services to support the body, mind and spirit of our patients relies upon support from generous donors. We hope you will consider supporting this important work with a charitable contribution. Support can be made in a variety of ways, including:
For more information about how you can help support the Center, please contact the Development Department at (212) 636-8416. Gifts should be made payable to Mount Sinai Beth Israel and specified for the Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine.
Gifts of Cash
A planned gift is an easy way for you to make a donation. You can remember The Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine through a simple bequest in your will, or arrange a life income gift that will provide for yourself and your loved ones, either during your lifetime or after. Planned gifts are an excellent way to create your legacy and memorialize loved ones. Following is a brief review of some of the most common arrangements:
A charitable gift annuity is a simple agreement between you and Mount Sinai Beth Israel whereby, in exchange for an irrevocable gift of cash or securities, we promise to pay you, and another person of your choice, a guaranteed income for life. Your payout rate is based on the ages of the people receiving income (not more than two). You are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for part of your gift, and if you use appreciated securities, you can avoid some of the capital gains tax which you would otherwise incur. Also, part of your income payments may be tax-free. Minimum gift is $5,000.
Charitable Remainder Trusts
Charitable remainder trusts are individually managed and invested gift vehicles that allow you to provide income to yourself or others for life or for a term of years (usually 10, 15 or 20), while making a generous gift to the Center. You would irrevocably transfer assets (cash, securities, real estate or other assets of your choice) to the trust. Each year of the trust's term, you and/or your loved ones will receive an annual income from the trust, which may be tailored to your needs (fixed or variable). You will receive an income tax deduction in the year you establish the trust for the full fair market value of the transferred asset. You also may reduce considerably your estate tax liability. When the trust term ends, the principal passes to the Center. Minimum gift is $100,000.
