Recurring Gifts

Opera Naples now offers recurring gifts. Giving  has never been easier! Make your gifts to Opera Naples quarterly, monthly, or as often as you’d like. Your donation will be auto­matically deducted from a bank account or charged to your credit card. Simply select how often you would like to make your gift and let our system do the rest.

Pledges

Receive donor benefits right away based on the pledge of a gift. Call our office at (239) 963-9050 to make your pledge today!

Outright Gift of Publicly-Traded Securities

When you donate shares of stock that you have held for more than 12 months (or inherited), you get a deduction for the value of the gift. You do not pay income tax on the increase in value between the time you bought the stock and the time of the gift. Thus, it’s better to give away stock (that has increased in value) than to sell the stock and give away the proceeds. For stock transfer instructions please contact Sondra Quinn, Executive Director, at (239) 963-9050 or squinn@operanaples.org.

Honor a Loved One

Nothing says that you appreciate the difference an individual has made to you or the community like honoring them through a donation. Make a donation in their name or memory and still receive 100% of the tax benefits!

Matching Gifts

Did you know that you may be able to double your donation to the Opera? Many companies and foundations match employee and retiree donations to non-profit organizations such as Opera Naples! Check with your company or foundation to see if it’s possible that your gift can go twice as far!

Underwriting Opportunities

Cover the cost of an artist ($10,000-$25,000), a costume ($5,000), an entire opera production ($50,000-$225,000), an elementary school performance ($3,000- $5,000), a youth student apprenticeship ($1,000), the Summer Youth Program production ($10,000), a Resident Artist ($15,000-$20,000)… your gift makes the opera come alive!
