An endowment gift to the Metropolitan Opera today provides a brighter picture for the future of the opera. When you make a donation to an endowment, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowment donations are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs at the Met. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support. Please note: the Met has a minimum of $100,000 on endowed gifts.
How It Works
Longtime Metropolitan Opera supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure the Met continues to receive support after they’re gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $100,000 donation to the Met, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support the opera in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
