Support Sarasota Opera with Your Year-End Giving! As 2022 begins to fade and we prepare to start a new year, we want to share two ways you can support Sarasota Opera with your year-end giving. Gifts can be made by credit card, check, gifts of stock, or a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA. You can make your gift online, by mail, or by calling Director of Development Scott Guinn at (941) 366-8450, ext. 416. If you are already an annual supporter of Sarasota Opera or a subscriber, our most urgent need is the replacement of the HVAC system in our Pavilion. This building, purchased in 1995, houses rehearsal studios, the Box Office, our Education programs, and Production offices. Due to the age of the current system, replacement is now our only option. We intend to fund 90% of the $700,000 price tag with support from local and national foundations, as well as other grantors. To complete the funding, however, we will need support from individuals in our community, like you. Click here to learn more. If you are new to Sarasota Opera or have not yet become a donor, now is the perfect time to support the Annual Fund with your STAR, Youth Opera & Education, or Co-Producer gift! We cannot do the work we do and at the level we do it without the wonderful and generous community. Click here to learn how you can make an annual gift today!
