Leave a gift in your Will
A bequest to the Opera Australia Capital Fund is a contribution to the future of opera in Australia.
Now more than ever it is crucial that we safeguard the long-term financial viability of Australia’s national opera company. Thanks to the generous contributions from gifts in Wills, the Opera Australia Capital Fund is providing constancy in today’s challenging times, helping to secure the future of opera in Australia for generations to come.
Arranging a bequest is a generous way to make a lasting contribution for the benefit of future generations. All bequests are invested by the Capital Fund and add to the annual grant made to Opera Australia.
We invite you to consider leaving a gift in your Will to the Opera Australia Capital Fund – every contribution is valued and makes a critical difference. The Capital Fund is an independent trust fund whose primary role is to build capital reserves to help ensure that Opera Australia not only survives, but thrives.
