Why Invest in San Francisco Opera

What a gift says about you

When you make the important decision to leave a legacy gift to San Francisco Opera, you demonstrate your commitment to presenting opera performances of the highest international quality and making them available to the widest possible audiences. A legacy gift shows your willingness to invest in our shared vision to be the most exciting force in the opera world, now and in the future.

The benefits of charitable planning

When you create a will or living trust and specify those loved ones you wish to remember as well as the charitable causes that are important to you, you ensure that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes.

While your gift, and your will or trust, are private, and their terms are entirely up to you, please remember that if you let us know that you’ve made a gift to our Company, you will help us to better plan our future operations. Plus, informing us of your legacy gift will give us the opportunity to recognize your thoughtfulness now, with our heartfelt gratitude.

Putting your loved ones and favorite causes first

We wholeheartedly agree that your family comes first. But after you take care of family members, we hope you will consider designating part of your estate to San Francisco Opera. Your gift could go a long way toward enriching the wonderful opera art form and the organization you love.
