Steve McGinty is a computer software engineer, who spends his days providing technical support to commercial users of mainframe products.

Outside of work, Mr. McGinty has a passion for opera, which has long been an important part of his life.

“Once a person has been exposed to opera, it can have a tremendous impact on their life,” says Mr. McGinty.

Mr. McGinty has been a season subscriber at LA Opera for many years and generously supports the company through annual contributions.

Recently, Mr. McGinty began to consider how best to accomplish his charitable goal of making a lasting impact on the future of opera in Los Angeles. In consultation with LA Opera’s planned giving professionals, he selected a very generous gift from his IRA as the best way to benefit the company.

“I made a planned gift to LA Opera to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to enjoy this art form,” says Mr. McGinty.

LA Opera is grateful to Steve McGinty for his generous contribution to the company, both today and for the future.

Supporting LA Opera through a planned gift allows you to make a long-lasting impact on LA Opera’s ability to present world-class opera for generations to come.

A tax-deductible planned gift can be made by cash or with property, such as appreciated securities or real estate, through your will or living trust.  Planned gifts may also be made by naming LA Opera as the beneficiary of a bank account, securities account, insurance policy or retirement plan, such as an IRA account.  Some gifts may also provide you with lifetime income.
