Stock Gifts

Gifts of stock, especially long-term appreciated stock, provide benefits to both The Atlanta Opera and you. The Opera can put your funds to work immediately and you can:

  • Give appreciated assets and you will usually avoid tax on the gain
  • Receive the regular charitable income tax deduction if you itemize your taxes
  • Claim a tax deduction for the full market value (rather than the cost value) of your stock if you have owned the securities for more than one year

Annual or Monthly Donations

Patrons may prefer to make several smaller payments throughout the year instead of one larger single donation. We are happy to offer you an opportunity to use a payment plan for your season subscriptions and donations. Use a credit card, debit card, or bank transfer to make an annual payment, or to make payments throughout the year. You can do this online by clicking on the Donate button, choosing “Monthly” or “Annually” in the Reoccuring Gift drop down, and indicating the amount you wish to pay each month or year.

Make a Gift in Honor or in Memory of a Loved One

If you have someone special in your life that loves opera, make a gift to The Atlanta Opera’s Annual Fund in their name. Gifts of $250 or more will be listed in the Aria program books.

Matching Gifts with Your Employer

Many employers match their employees’ charitable contributions. Corporate matching gifts are a great way to maximize personal contributions to The Atlanta Opera and increase the impact of your gift. By taking advantage of a company’s matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of a contribution.

Check our complimentary directory of companies who match gifts to see if your employer is one of them! If you do not see your employer listed, you can also check with your human resources department.

How do I get my gift matched?
Each company has its own guidelines for employees, spouses, retirees, and widows/widowers. Most corporate procedures are very simple:

  1. Request a Matching Form from your company.
  2. Complete and submit the form to The Atlanta Opera along with your gift.
  3. The Atlanta Opera will verify the completed form and return it to the company.
  4. The company issues a matching gift contribution to The Atlanta Opera.

Completed forms can be sent with your personal gift to:
