Ambassador Board

Portland Opera launches its first Ambassador Board this fall to bring young professionals together to engage and promote the work of Portland Opera. These individuals are some of Portland’s brightest young professionals working to raise the philanthropic profile, awareness and mission of Portland Opera through marketing, event fundraising and relationship building among the next generation of patrons and donors.


By engaging in our mission, Ambassador Board members are the next generation of Portland philanthropists that serve as advocates for cultural diversity and musical excellence.

The Portland Opera provides Ambassador Board members the opportunity to engage in a classic and revered art form with a prestigious organization as well as opportunities for professional development, board leadership development, networking, and support connecting members with board service and service to our community.
