Ardis Krainik Society

Ensuring Lyric's long-term success

The Ardis Krainik Society consists of those esteemed supporters who have designated a special gift to benefit Lyric Opera of Chicago in the future through bequests, life insurance, IRAs, trusts, or other planned-giving arrangements. These generous gifts ensure our artistic progress well into the 21st century for the benefit of generations to come.

In addition, through a variety of "income for life" plans such as charitable remainder trusts, donors can receive a steady stream of income for themselves or loved ones, along with substantial tax savings. Gift planning at Lyric offers a unique way to make charitable gifts, and ensures financial security allowing Lyric to engage in long-range planning for future opera productions.
