Make a Big Impact with a Future Gift

All those who have remembered Merola in their estate planning are part of the Merola Legacy Society. Planned giving gifts to the Merola Legacy Society provide stable support that ensures Merola will be able to continue its mission of training and nurturing the finest young operatic talent year after year, in good times and bad.

How Your Giving Can Make an Impact for Generations to Come:

  • Merola Scholarship Fund
  • Master Teacher, Director, and Conductor Endowment
  • Career Grant Endowment
  • More named endowment opportunities are available.


All those who make planned gifts of any amount to Merola are members of the Merola Legacy Society. For further information about including Merola in your estate plans, contact Tracy Grant at or (415) 936-2319.
