Family Giving

Consider consolidating resources to make a larger impact. Multigenerational family giving is a great way to collectively support the mission of an organization that you love, and instills philanthropy for generations to come. 

This could be an already established family donor advised fund, or you can contact our Development team to discuss your intentions—either way, this could be the perfect time to feel pride and joy in the impact you've made at Portland Opera. 

Tax-Efficient ways to make your gift!
Gifts of Securities or Stock

Portland Opera does not have a required minimum to donate securities that have increased in value directly to the institution. If you have securities, this can be an attractive way to make a contribution while reducing capital gains tax.
