The Percival Lowell Trust
Make Visionary Endeavors Possible
Toward the end of his life, Percival Lowell established a trust that would support the observatory he founded well after he had died. 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, helping to pay for operating expenses, funding visionary endeavors like the 4.3-meter Lowell Discovery Telescope (LDT), and acting as a vital safety net during times of economic downturn.
