planned gifts and indirect giving

Want to support BgO but don't have the money right now? No problem! Consider a planned gift. By naming The Bluegrass Opera in your will or other estate planning (or as a beneficiary in a life insurance policy), you can ensure a legacy of support for the arts and education in central Kentucky and beyond. Contact us at (859) 940-9379 for more information.

You can also support BgO by shopping at Amazon Smile. Just visit (or click the button below) and log in to your regular Amazon account. Type "Bluegrass Opera" in the charity search box, and we should be the first group that comes up. Click "Select" and you're done! You should see our name at the top of the page every time you shop at (we recommend bookmarking the link so you can be sure all your Amazon purchases will benefit BgO).


We're always in need of some additional people to help us out with odd jobs. Whether it's moving scenery around, assisting with costume changes, distributing tickets at a show, or helping us to put up flyers around the community, BgO's productions are truly a team effort. If you have some spare time and would enjoy getting involved in the activities of a professional theatre company, please let us know -- we'd love to have you with us!
