Become a PORTopera Supporter!
There are several ways to help PORTopera in its mission of creating full productions of grand opera for Maine audiences. Financial support is primary and represents about 30% of PORTopera's total income.
Our patrons include many hundreds from Maine and elsewhere. We also invite the help of private foundations. You are invited to participate in our current campaign — and many thanks! For your convenience, we now accept online donations through our secure donation page.
There are New Opportunities for You to Get Involved with PORTopera! PORTopera has openings for new members to participate on committees in the coming year. There are also openings for three new Board members for positions available due to term expirations. Click here for more information, or click the volunteer button to fill out our volunteer form!
A large number of Greater Portland businesses have underwritten PORTopera productions. They include those listed at right to name but a few. If your company has interest in joining this group, please contact us.
