Supporting POV

Support us

POV's unique brand of creative opera production is made possible by the support of our donors and sponsors, by their passion for opera and their faith in this opera company.

If you care about opera in Victoria and about the future of this vibrant, innovative art form, please consider supporting Pacific Opera. Ticket revenue pays for less than half of what it costs to have opera in our community. Your gift helps make possible POV's original new productions; it also fosters POV's education and community engagement programs, enriching the community and nurturing emerging Canadian artists.

There are many ways that you can support Pacific Opera Victoria, and we in turn welcome the opportunity to enhance your operatic experience through a range of benefits and events that will bring you closer to the productions your generosity makes possible.

Annual Support

Individual Donations: Please consider joining one of our donor families by making a tax deductible gift:

Opera Centre Naming Campaign

A New Home for Pacific Opera Victoria, the Opera Centre will house our opera rehearsals, artist training and youth education programs, as well as our administrative offices. Your support of the Opera Centre will create a home for Opera in our community.

Planned Giving

Donations to the POV Foundation: Support the future of opera in our community through a gift to the Pacific Opera Victoria Foundation or by considering Pacific Opera in your estate plans.


Volunteering a gift of time and expertise makes an important contribution to the company's activities.
