Legacy Giving

Your legacy gift will help North Carolina Opera continue its mission of producing professional opera. Audiences today and in the future will benefit from your generosity.  
 
Making this kind of gift is cost-free during your lifetime, but the benefits are long-lasting to NCO and those who love opera. With your help, we can make sure that the Triangle enjoys the magic of opera for years to come!

FOUR EASY WAYS TO MAKE YOUR LEGACY GIFT
 
Your Life Insurance  
Life insurance that no longer serves its original purpose, such as college funding or spousal support, may be used instead to ensure that opera is enjoyed by and accessible to future audiences. 
 
Your Retirement Plan
You can ensure that the magic of opera continues by making NCO a beneficiary in your retirement plan. 
 
Your Will 
You can help NC Opera expand its productions and education programs for years to come, simply by making a gift of any amount in your will.  NOTE: If you have already made provision for NCO in your estate planning, please let us know by emailing ellen.fort@ncopera.org or by completing this form.  
 
Your Charitable Gift Annuity 
When you create a charitable gift annuity benefiting NCO, you will ensure that the curtain continues to rise upon high-quality productions like PAGLIACCI and THE MAGIC FLUTE.
