SPONSORSHIP MAKES A REAL DIFFERENCE TO OPERA COLUMBUS
Contributions to Opera Columbus directly support our mainstage opera productions and Education & Community Programming. Production underwriting and sponsorship enhances the artistic quality of our mainstage productions, supporting exceptional artists and staging. Sponsorship of our Education & Community Programming helps to make our programs more accessible to all, including underserved communities, by allowing us to deliver enriching cultural programming to schools and students at minimal or no cost.
SPONSORSHIP LEVELS & BENEFITS
Opera Columbus offers benefits for every size of business, and sponsorship benefits can be developed to address your company’s specific marketing and public relations objectives. We will work with you to put together a package that meets your company’s needs. Sponsorships may be designated to support an entire season of productions or programs, an individual production, program, or event, or even a particular aspect of a production, such as the Opera Columbus Chorus.
ANNUAL FUND DONORS
Annual fund donors provide Opera Columbus with essential operating support every season to ensure our productions and programs are onstage, in schools, and reaching across our community. This support makes it possible for OC to employ artists and share timeless stories that have been loved for generations, and to design creative ways to share the most magnificent art form of opera. Thank you to our amazing annual fund donors.
Legacy donors provide Opera Columbus with a final gift to ensure that Opera Columbus will continue to thrive and serve our community for generations to come. Remembering Opera Columbus in your will or estate plans can be as simple as adding the following sentence:
