Make opera a part of your life. Every donation to Palm Beach Opera is instrumental in bringing world-class live opera to our local stage and allows us to offer education programs that enrich the lives of our community. Donors enjoy benefits commensurate with their level of giving and enrich their opera experience through a variety of programs and special events. Please review our donor benefits and join our Palm Beach Opera Family of supporters today.

Opera is the most labor intensive art form, employing 150 to 200 people for each production, which makes it costly to produce. At Palm Beach Opera, even if every performance is sold out, ticket sales cover only 33% of what it costs to bring the world’s finest singers to Palm Beach and to produce what you see on stage. The remaining expenses are covered by generous, tax-deductible donations from opera fans like you, who are our principal source of contributed income.

Honor/Memorial Gifts

The Honor/Memorial Gift Program of Palm Beach Opera is a wonderful way to mark important occasions. The PBO Family uses Honor Gifts to celebrate a birth or an anniversary; a wedding or a graduation, any significant life event or ongoing commitment to PBO may be celebrated. A Memorial Gift helps celebrate the passing of an individual to whom PBO was an important part of their lives.

If you want to make a donation in memory of a deceased family member or friend, or in honor of a special occasion, Palm Beach Opera will send a letter to that person’s family acknowledging your thoughtful donation. You will receive a letter confirming that your donation has been received and that a gift message has been sent.
