The Percival Lowell Trust
Toward the end of his life, Percival Lowell established a trust to support his observatory in perpetuity. Today, the Percival Lowell Trust continues as a separate 501(c)(3) entity that accepts unrestricted gifts to address the greatest areas of benefit to the observatory, funding visionary endeavors like the 4.3-meter Lowell Discovery Telescope (LDT).
