For a very long time, Fresno Grand Opera has relied on the extraordinary support of just a small group of people to fund the operations of the company. Our goal beginning this season is to make FGO a much more community-based company that represents and is supported at smaller, sustainable levels by a wider portion of our community.
With our new management model now fully in place, FGO is significantly more sustainable than ever before, so it doesn’t take a significant effort to make opera a permanent fixture in the cultural fabric of our community.
100 new donors each making a $100 contribution
