The only thing you need to do is to let us know you have included a gift to LA Opera in your future plans. Your thoughtfulness will ensure that future generations will enjoy world class opera in Los Angeles.

There are many ways for you to do it. Many members have simply added LA Opera in their will. Others have named LA Opera as the beneficiary of their IRA or other retirement plan. Some have named LA Opera as the beneficiary of their Donor Advised Fund or Insurance Policy.

Some have made gifts of tangible property or other unusual or under-used assets.

Still others have made gifts where they or their loved ones continue to receive income or other ongoing interest. Those gifts include charitable remainder trusts, lead trusts, gift annuities, deferred gift annuities and retained life estates.
