Seeking Foundations, Community Organizations and Individuals with a Passion for Music

Are you on the Board of Directors of a charitable Foundation?

Do you know of a charitable Foundation who is interested in supporting a non-profit whose focus is music programs for children?

We are searching daily for foundations that are accepting grant proposals from organizations like Guild Opera Company.

Special Support

The following provided partial funding for Guild Opera Co. activities:

Awarded a Five-Year Contract with the LAUSD Arts Community Network

The Los Angeles Unified School District awarded Guild Opera Company a five-year contract to be part of their Arts Community Network (ACN) beginning July 1, 2021. This follows a one-year ACN contract that GOC just completed for the 2021-2022 school year, although no performances were allowed because of the on-going threat of Covid 19. The ACN is a select group of community arts organizations that are carefully chosen through a detailed application process and have been approved by the district to provide arts education to the schools. Guild Opera Company’s student-centered operas are being enthusiastically promoted to LAUSD schools to bring our unique opera experiences to the students to supplement the district arts programming.

Darcy and Richard Kopcho Fund

We are pleased to announce the Darcy and Richard Kopcho Fund to bring the world of opera to elementary schools and especially to schools which are under served. Darcy and Richard have supported these efforts for many years. Guild Opera Co. and the community at large is grateful for their untiring efforts.

Randy Melson Scholarship Fund

Guild Opera Company has an interest in the development of young classical singers, and would like to support their efforts to become professional artists. To that end, we are pleased to announce the RANDY MELSON SCHOLARSHIP FUND in honor of Randy Melson and her many years of service and support to young singers in Southern California. Young adult singers will be encouraged to audition for awards to be applied toward their vocal development. Details will be forthcoming.

We gratefully acknowledge the following individual contributors:

Names in bold are ANGELS who sponsored opera performances at various schools.

In far too many schools, arts funding has been eliminated.
Yet numerous studies show that arts education provides
enormous benefit for kids – and their communities.
Your support helps introduce students to opera.
