Legacy Giving

Leave behind a lasting legacy by making a planned gift to the Leela Foundation and make an indelible impact on the field of Indian classical dance and music.

By planning a future gift to the Leela Foundation you help ensure the longevity and sustainability of our work. A legacy gift not only facilitates the preservation and advancement of artistic traditions that are at risk but also ensures that artists and tradition bearers receive the critical support they need and individuals and communities have access to the richness and depth of India’s artistic and cultural heritage.

Ways to Give

A gift in your will
Including the Leela Foundation in your will is an easy way to make a lasting gift, ensuring your legacy lives on. Designate a specific amount or leave a percentage of your estate to the Foundation and fuel Indian classical dance and music into the future.

Non-cash assets
Donating certain non-cash assets like real estate can provide significant tax benefits while advancing the Foundation’s mission.

Beneficiary designations
Your retirement plans, life insurance policies, and annuities can all help provide lasting support for the field of Indian classical dance and music.

Qualified charitable distributions
If you are 70½ or older, you can give up to $100,000 per year from your IRA without any income tax implications.
