Planned Giving

With a gift to the OPAS Foundation, you help to secure a vibrant future for the arts in Omaha for years to come. Endowment gifts are invested by the Foundation, which then grants funds to Omaha Performing Arts for facility needs, programs and operations.

Whether by will, trust or life income plan, your charitable estate gift can be structured to provide many immediate financial and philanthropic benefits:

  • An increase in your annual income
  • An income tax deduction
  • Avoidance of the tax on capital gains of appreciated assets
  • An estate and gift tax deduction
  • Recognition now and in the future on the Omaha Performing Arts' donor wall, in program books and more
  • The confidence that you've helped build a lasting cultural legacy in Omaha

  • One free rental of a reception space at the Orpheum Theater and Holland Performing Arts Center
  • Facility or institutional naming opportunities, if applicable
