Ways to Support The Woodland Opera House

Circle of Friends

The Circle of Friends at Woodland Opera House provides necessary additional support for our wide range of programming beyond the Mainstage series.  Individual and Corporate donations help keep the performing arts alive and vital in the Sacramento Valley region.  Pease consider making a tax-deductible contribution.

Checks can be made out to The Woodland Opera House Endowment Fund or The Woodland Opera House.  We also accept Visa and Master Card.

Endowment

The restoration of the Opera House began the drive to save and restore downtown Woodland, which has resulted in the preservation of much of the town’s past and character.  In 1997, the Board of Trustees established the WOH Permanent Endowment Fund to provide for the maintenance and preservation of our historic facility.  Gifts to the fund will never be spend, only income from the invested funds may be used for building repairs, renovations, or equipment replacement.  The Endowment Fund reached a significant milestone in 2003, surpassing $300,000 and generating enough income to allow for funding of regular maintenance projects.

The goal is to have the Fund support all repair and maintenance costs, ensuring the continued use of the Opera House for future generations. The Endowment Fund has grown through gifts of cash, stock, memorials, and bequests.  Donors of $2,500 or more may make a permanent seat dedication in the auditorium.  The Opera House is an IRS-recognized, nonprofit institution and all gifts have tax advantages. A tax professional can help answer your questions regarding how to make a gift to the Endowment.
