As one of the world’s leading opera companies, San Francisco Opera has been commissioning world premieres, training young artists, and thrilling audiences since 1923. To elevate its fundraising support for a variety of initiatives, including endowment, capital projects, and education programs, the Opera launched a $450 million campaign.
Campbell & Company provided campaign counsel and created a plan for moving the campaign forward. To advance its relationship-building efforts, our team conducted an in-depth assessment of its fundraising operations and led trainings for the Opera’s major gift fundraising staff.
"Campbell & Company offers a truly rigorous, results-focused approach that goes beyond just serving as a sounding board. By focusing our attention on the most important challenges, they’ve truly helped us reach the next level.”
-Jennifer Lynch, Director of Development of San Francisco Opera
The Opera used our recommendations and coaching to increase philanthropic support overall and strengthen its philanthropic infrastructure.
