Idealist Donor Program

The Sydney Opera House Idealist Donor Program brings together a passionate group of like-minded supporters who care deeply about the Opera House and wish to deepen their impact. Our Idealists are not only donors but advocates for all that we do, enabling our work on and off the stage.

As major donors, our Idealists make an annual tax-deductible gift, starting at $5,000. Idealists have access to a personal donor concierge service, regularly attend private Sydney Opera House events and enjoy open lines of communication with our team.

To learn more about the Idealist Donor Program please contact our Philanthropy Team via email or call +612 9250 7077.
