Get More for Your Donated Dollar!

The Secretary of State's Office for Washington State recently reported that of the record $444 million dollars donated to charities by Washingtonians in 2005, only 50% of it actually went to the charitable organizations. The rest went into the pockets of professional fundraisers.

Black Box Opera Theater is a lean company with low overhead where your donation makes a noticeable difference. Your donations go directly toward the costs of producing our shows. For instance:

•$60 buys 6 hours of rehearsal space

•$100 buys a costume (or two, or three!)

•$180 pays a rehearsal pianist

•$650 buys rehearsal space for an entire production

•$15,000 buys an entire production!

Black Box Opera Theater is the producing arm of the Ellen Faull Gordon Northwest Opera Center, a 501(c)3 public non-profit organization. Black Box Opera Theater will not sell or share your contact information.
