Legacy Society & Planned Giving

[image style=”style-2″ position=”below” src=”http://neworleansopera.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Legacy.jpg”]

Planned gifts greatly enhance the long-term stability of New Orleans Opera Association and help to ensure that opera will continue in New Orleans for years to come. We can assist you in finding the appropriate way to include the Opera in your estate plans, and we can recognize you for commitment to the Opera’s future success and growth.


Your planned gift can be as simple as a bequest in your will, or a designation of New Orleans Opera as the beneficiary of an insurance policy or annuity, but there are many ways to support the New Orleans Opera while maximizing your tax benefits or lifetime income. Contact Joanna Sternberg, Director of Development, at (504) 267-9526, to request more information about planned giving options or to let us know that you have included New Orleans Opera Association in your estate plans so we may recognize you as a member of the Legacy Society.
