Planned Giving

A planned gift to Lyric Opera of Kansas City can meet your life goals and financial needs, plus provide you or your estate with significant tax benefits – all while granting the Lyric a generous ultimate gift. Any planned gift entitles you to join The Encore Society, a special group of friends who have included Lyric Opera of Kansas City in their estate plans.


  • Beneficiary Designations – Naming Lyric Opera as beneficiary of your IRA, savings account, life insurance policy, or donor-advised fund
  • Bequests by Will – For general support, or a favorite aspect of the Lyric’s mission
  • Charitable Gift Annuities and Remainder Trusts – Gifts from which you (or a designee) can receive lifetime income


The Encore Society salutes the foresight and generosity of those who have included Lyric Opera in their wills or estate plans. If you have already included Lyric Opera in your plans, we’d love to hear from you so we may thank you through The Encore Society.
