Use a beneficiary designation on a retirement plan, insurance policy, or donor advised fund to make a gift to ensure LA Opera’s future.

  

RETIREMENT PLANS

Your retirement-plan benefits are very likely a significant portion of your net worth, and because of special tax considerations they could make an excellent choice for funding a charitable gift.

Retirement-plan benefits include assets held in individual retirement accounts (IRAs), 401(k) plans, profit-sharing plans, Keogh plans, and 403(b) plans.

You may wish to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis, such as real estate and stock, and give the retirement assets to LA Opera.

You name Los Angeles Opera Company as beneficiary for part or all of your retirement-plan benefits; funds are transferred by the plan administrator at death.
