Individual & Planned Giving

Inland Northwest Opera is honored by philanthropy from our patrons, donors and volunteers throughout the year. We could not offer the world-class array of performances without your generous gifts. Did you know – major gifts help make up the significant gap between ticket sales and real production costs? Thank you for your open-hearted participation in our success.


Your Gifts Help INO To

  • Cover the costs of main stage productions and community performances at traditional and unique venues, such as The Fox Theater and Opera on the Lake
  • Develop generational audiences through our educational and outreach programs and the newly established Millennial Club
  • Support, inspire and train future artists
  • Leverage other giving at significant levels

Annual Fund (AF) gifts to INO sustain opera throughout the Inland Northwest. We will always direct AF gifts for the Opera’s highest and best use unless donor directed.

Memorial/Tribute gifts are a loving way to honor loved ones by creating a legacy gift in their name.

Matching Gifts may often be obtained through your employer. Please check with your company’s Human Resources to see if there is a matching gift program or if the company would consider matching your gift to INO.

Designate a gift to help cover the costs of venue rentals, sets, costumes or a Principal Artist.
