Ways to Give

How You Can Make An Impact

Bring opera to life for arts lovers across Washington and beyond! There are so many ways your gift can make a difference. 

Support the Mainstage

Did you know that ticket sales cover less than half of what it takes to bring you Seattle Opera's extraordinary productions? We rely on donations from patrons like you to meet the full cost of presenting opera. When you contribute to the Annual Fund or make a Planned Gift, your donation allows us to stage opera of the highest quality that you and our audience have come to expect.

Donate to the Mainstage

Promote Learning & Engagement

The heart of Seattle Opera lies in our community, and we are dedicated to bringing opera to all through creative, experiential programming. Thanks to your generosity, Seattle Opera's learning and engagement programs continue to expand, reaching over 65,000 lives outside of McCaw Hall. Your gifts help provide access to arts for all, including neighborhood and school programs in high poverty areas for arts lovers of all ages.

Piano Fund

If you have a good-quality piano that is collecting dust or propping doors, you can donate it and support Seattle Opera.

Sherman Clay Piano Company created the Seattle Opera Piano Fund which allows individuals to donate used pianos to Seattle Opera. Sherman Clay will asses the piano’s condition. If suitable, the piano will be refurbished for Seattle Opera's use or sold, designating the funds to help the Opera maintain the company’s rehearsal pianos or to purchase new instruments.

To find out how you can participate in Sherman Clay’s Seattle Opera Piano Fund program, please contact Ben Klinger of Sherman Clay at 206.622.7580.

Donor Advised Funds

Make a gift through a Donor Advised Fund (DAF), an increasingly popular charitable vehicle that provides flexibility in supporting your favorite causes with favorable tax benefits. Use the DAF Direct widget below to get started.
