The IRA Charitable Rollover is now permanent! If you are over 70 ½ years old you may make a direct transfer up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity without having to pay income taxes on the distribution.

Simply instruct your IRA Plan Administrator to transfer funds directly to OperaDelaware and provide our address (4 South Poplar St. Wilmington, DE 19801) and Federal Tax ID Number (51-6018055).

Many companies will double (or sometimes triple!) the value of their employees' gifts. If your company or firm has a matching gift program, simply enclose the form along with your contribution and we'll take care of the rest.

Not sure if your company offers gift matching? Contact our development associate Ryan MacPherson to find out.


Gift plans create opportunities for both OperaDelaware and its donors. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many options from which you can choose. The correct plan for you balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.

A planned gift is best made with the counsel of one’s key financial advisors (attorney, accountant, insurance professional, banker, financial planner, etc.). OperaDelaware encourages you to consult your legal or financial advisor to keep abreast of changing tax laws.

Planned gifts are essential to ensuring that OperaDelaware will be around for generations to come. If you have named us in your will or estate plans, please let us know so we can welcome you to The Heritage Club. Please contact us at (302) 442-7809, or email Mary Wilcosky at


You can also support OperaDelaware through a wide array of non-cash donations of items and services. We would be happy to exchange unique promotional opportunities for your gifts. These items can be donated to OperaDelaware as a tax-deductible gift in-kind.
