Merola operates in close artistic collaboration with San Francisco Opera but is an independent nonprofit organization. Governed by a separate Board of Directors, Merola is responsible for its own long-term financial stability and fundraising, and is grateful to the hundreds of loyal members, donors and foundations who support the Program.
