Calgary Opera’s Legacy Society is a new endeavour for the company, focused on building long-term sustainability for Calgary Opera through donations and gifts from patrons wishing to leave a lasting legacy that goes beyond their lifetime.
The Legacy Society will allow patrons to pledge gifts through their wills, retirement plans, life-income plans, and many other creative planned-giving arrangements. Associates of the Legacy Society will be joining a very special group of Calgary Opera friends who believe in supporting high-quality arts. Appreciation for their gift will be acknowledged through recognition and with invitations to attend especially planned events, including an annual dinner with Honorary Chair, Ben Heppner.
“Having sung at leading opera houses all over the world, I have seen first-hand the need for consistent financial support from governments, corporations, and individual donors to keep this vibrant and vital art form healthy and innovative. Calgary Opera’s new Legacy Society will enable the company to add to its existing base of support, and make bold artistic plans for the future.”
Ben Heppner, Internationally renowned Canadian Operatic Tenor
