Consider Giving

Opera is the most expensive live art form. Even a sold out performance covers only a portion of what it costs to produce an opera. Ticket revenues generate about 37% of our entire budget. Government grants & programs add another 30% and so we count on your support to fund the remaining 33%.

Individuals, small and medium businesses and large corporations all play a vital role in helping us produce what you experience in the theatre.

Director's Circle

Gifts of $1000 or more entitle our individual donors to become members of Opera Hamilton's Director's Circle. This special group of patrons receive additional recognition and opportunities, beyond their tax receipt, which increase appropriate to the amount of donation.

Friends of Opera Hamilton

Individual donors are recognized for their tax deductible gifts at levels appropriate to the size of the gift. Starting at as little as $50 all donors are thanked in our programs and website and the benefits grow from there.
