Individual Giving

Share

When you take your seat in the intimate and elegant Brown Theatre to enjoy one of our opera productions, you experience the full power, emotion, and impact of opera.  By becoming a Kentucky Opera donor, you move from being a spectator to becoming a full collaborator.

Ticket sales cover only 20% of the costs of Kentucky Opera’s mainstage production season, as well as our high-quality, year-round outreach and enrichment programs. Other funding mechanisms are therefore critically important to Kentucky Opera on an ongoing basis.  The generosity of individual and organizational donors enables Kentucky Opera to balance its budget to fulfill our mission of providing very high quality live opera throughout the region that invigorates minds and emotions, attract an increasingly-diverse audience, and bring arts education to tens of thousands of students and educators each year

A variety of giving levels has been established to appeal to donors of all types, and with varying financial means.  To learn more about any of the giving levels described below, please contact Frances Skolnick, Kentucky Opera’s director of development, at 502.561.7939, or email Frances Skolnick.
