Ways to Give


Production Sponsor

Receive exclusive invitations to performances and sneak peeks into the creative concepts of each season, while financing inspiring opera that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Sponsorship opportunities begin at $10,000. We are happy to customize a benefits package to meet your philanthropic and marketing goals.

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Please ask your Human Resource department for a matching gift form and send the completed form to COT.

Gifts of Securities

Making a gift of appreciated securities to COT lends vital support to the company. Please contact us for stock transfer instructions.

Honor/Tribute Gifts

Remember and celebrate a friend or loved one with a COT gift instead of a more traditional gift. To honor your dear ones, visit us online at www.ChicagoOperaTheater.org.

Planned Giving, The Encore Society

A legacy gift ensures that COT will offer to future generations more inspiring opera that will always keep audiences on the edge of their seat; will produce affordable opera as Chicago has never imagined; will create opportunities for young opera artists; and will educate children to become opera lovers. If you have arranged a planned gift for COT, kindly let us know as we would be pleased to recognize your generosity.

In-Kind Donations

In-kind gifts can be valuable to COT. We are pleased to accept certain in-kind gifts, and will provide you with a tax receipt for your donation.

To make any type of gift, for more information, or if you have any questions, please contact Director of Development, Ashely Magnus at [email protected]
