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. The Woodland Opera House receives no state funding, therefore, 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 spent, 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.
