Corporate Sponsorship

Your Corporation Can Play a Part … Impact the Bay Area Community with Your Corporate Citizenship


San Francisco Opera Guild patrons represent all age groups and run the gamut from large corporations to leaders of social, political and philanthropic organizations. Sponsorship of our events and programs ensures multiple benefits that include the ability to effectively target and connect with this sophisticated, well-educated and influential audience from across the Bay Area and beyond.

Our corporate friends enjoy distinctive opportunities to increase their brand exposure, awareness and loyalty, network with executives … and share our passion. We offer sponsorships of our education programs and acclaimed events, including Opera Ball, and we are also ever grateful for your in-kind supportDownload our gift opportunities brochure and learn  how you can ignite a spark and make a difference.

Opera Patron Demographics:
55% have post graduate degrees
Most are extensive international travelers

We offer standard sponsorship packages, as well as tailored packages that can be specifically crafted to meet your company’s business and corporate citizenship goals. Your donation may qualify your company for specific tax-deductible benefits.

Corporate partners enjoy knowing that all net proceeds from gifts are channeled directly to our education programs — giving your company a vital role in fostering future creative thinkers, strategists and innovators — in an era when art and music programs, essential for developing these skills — are disappearing from curricula.

Opera Ball and Event Sponsorships

Opera Ball is our premier event, igniting the season’s opening night with pageantry. It is attended by more than 750 highly influential Opera enthusiasts and prominent patrons and is covered by the top tier media, including Town & Country, The Food Network, San Francisco Chronicle, US Weekly, etc. We also host exclusive signature events over the course of the year that offer our sponsors plenty of opportunity to extend the impact of opera in the community and help make a difference in the lives of more than 50,000 children.

Corporations can choose from a variety of sponsorship packages: ranging from high-impact “Presenting” levels to buying a table for 10 business associates, clients or prospects!
