Leave a Legacy: Include Opera Southwest in Your Estate Planning

You don’t have to be an opera singer to leave a permanent, meaningful artistic legacy. We invite you to join the current members of Opera Southwest’s Encore Society by including Opera Southwest in your financial and estate plan.

Many planned gift options are available and a summary of the most frequent types of planned gifts can be secured under the left tab “Planned Giving Toolkit”. Since the company has achieved financial stability and completed the Fund for the Future campaign, we have initiated an revitalized planned giving program. Opera Southwest is in a position to assist you through our new relationship with Albuquerque Community Foundation. We have entered into an Opera Southwest Endowment with ACF and they have the resources to coordinate other more complicated gifts. Two Board members are leading this effort (Joann MacKenzie and Julius Kaplan) and would be happy to meet with you individually to address your questions. To request more information, click here.

We acknowledge with deep gratitude the generosity of the following donors. They recognize the importance of “leaving an opera legacy” for the next generation. We thank them and encourage you to consider joining the Encore Society.
