Support the Opera Foundation
You may support the Foundation's activities by making a direct tax deductible donation or by taking part in our annual fundraising event, the Opera Gala, typically held in November. All individual contributors and corporate sponsors will be acknowledged in our website unless they would like to remain anonymous.
We encourage individuals, corporation and foundations to become long-term sponsors of our scholarships. This entails a minimum 2-3 year commitment to underwrite a scholarship at US$16,000 per year. This commitment includes naming rights of the scholarship giving the sponsor maximum exposure to promote, for example, a corporation or foundation's commitment to the Arts. The Scholarship may also be established to honor a certain individual.
To take part in our annual Opera Gala, you may participate at the Benefactor level, which entitles you to a table for 10 at $10,000, and acknowledgement in the event's program and other special privileges throughout the year, including a private invitation to attend our annual auditions. You may also participate at the Sponsor level, which entitles you to a table of 10 at $5,000.
Individual Benefactor or Sponsor tickets can be purchased at $1,000 or $500 per person, respectively. In accordance with Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code, any amounts in excess of $200 per person will be allowed as a charitable contribution deduction.
We have provided direct links to our PayPal account for which to purchase an Opera Gala ticket or donate as much as you wish up to $5000.
It is very important that all donations over $5000 be made by check or money order. If you wish to donate more than $5000, please contact the foundation.
The Opera Foundation, Inc. is an exempt organization pursuant to section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
