Want to benefit from the tax savings that result from supporting LA Opera without giving up the assets that you'd like your family to receive in the future? Consider a donation in the form of a charitable lead trust.

Your gift through a charitable lead trust qualifies for a federal gift tax deduction.  LA Opera receives payments from the trust until the trust is terminated.  When the trust is terminated, the beneficiaries of the trust (for example, family members) will receive all the trust’s assets, which will include any asset growth that occurs within the trust, free of gift and estate tax.
