Pacific Opera Victoria builds operas from the ground up. Every POV production is sparked by an artistic impulse and brought to life through the director's creative perspective, the designer's vision, the conductor's verve and musical intelligence, and the ingenuity and resourcefulness of POV's production artists. As a result, every POV production is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

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:

Consider a donation of publicly listed securities
Donating stocks, bonds, or mutual funds with capital gains can be one of the most tax-effective ways to give. When you donate shares, you do not pay tax on the capital gains, and you receive a charitable tax receipt for the value of the shares on the day they are received into POV's account.
Securities Donation Form


Corporate and Business Support: Corporate support of Pacific Opera Victoria provides a unique opportunity to combine outstanding opera with marketing, promotional and entertainment benefits.


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.

The Bravo Society honours those who have arranged a donation to the POV Foundation in their wills, as well as those who have made some other type of future gift such as an insurance policy, an annuity, or a trust arrangement.


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