Welcome to the second annual BOCtober Fundraiser!
To avoid bombarding our supporters with email on Giving Tuesday – when many other nonprofits are also communicating with patrons – we’re moving our season fundraiser to October 29.
We’re hoping to raise $12,000. Will you help us with a small gift of $10, 25, or more? We are continually grateful for the impact of the many individuals who support our company. Every donation counts and every BOC supporter is helping us bring important and powerful storytelling to the Boston community.
In my own fun twist on this fundraising effort, I am offering the below incentives for the corresponding levels of donation.
Gift of $100 or more: One free, hour-long voice lesson/repertoire coaching to be scheduled at the donor's leisure.
Gift of $250 or more: Dinner and one round of drinks at the chic and eclectic Brighton Bodega with Wes Hunter (on him) to discuss music, politics, and fun lion facts...or wherever the interesting conversation leads.
Gift of $500 or more: A one-hour concert for you and your friends at your home or available venue of your choosing.
These incentives cannot be combined and will only be available for the duration of this fundraising campaign. Please select on the Crowdrise website "Wes Hunter" in order to have your contributions considered for the incentives.
At a time when our communities are deeply divided along lines of class, race, gender and political party, Boston Opera Collaborative is dedicated to bringing people together to share an artistic experience – to tell stories that raise questions, create joy, promote dialogue, build community, and encourage audiences to think about what it means to be human.
This season, we’re presenting the most unique opera experience you’ll see in Boston this year with Room&Board&Opera – a collection of poignant and raucous short operas performed in the Room&Board Showroom -- an intimate, tight, and heartwarming rendition of the comic classic The Marriage of Figaro, as well as our annual production of Opera Bites, a feast of new 10-minute operas.
About 60% of our modest budget is generated through contributions, so every gift is crucial to our success!
