If so, you will want to know that there is now a new way to support the long-term sustainability of the Anchorage Opera. The Anchorage Opera Foundation is a separate and independent 501(c)3 corporation whose sole mission is to support the long-term fiscal health of the Anchorage Opera.

The Anchorage Opera Foundation is seeking major gifts to establish permanent endowments, the principal of which can be restricted in perpetuity.
• A gift of $25,000 is required to initiate a named fund.
• Smaller amounts can be donated to a general endowment and can also be permanently restricted.
• Foundation by-laws ensure that donor wishes are permanently honored.

To explore the possibility of supporting the Anchorage Opera Foundation, please contact Reed Smith. General Director, Anchorage Opera, at

To make a gift in memory of  Peter M. Ricca please send a check payable to the Anchorage Opera Foundation to:
Anchorage Opera

Anchorage, AK 99501

The Foundation is governed by a Board of up to nine directors, the majority of which are community trustees. The Anchorage Opera Foundation is an appropriate vehicle for planned giving and legacy bequests. Before making a gift, please consult your own financial advisor.
