San Francisco Opera


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.
