January Matching Grants Applications Closed

by Barb E on November 17, 2015

OVI is no longer accepting applications for the January Matching Grants program. If your member opera support group was unable to submit a proposal in time,fear not.  Applications will again be accepted for the March 15, 2016 deadline. Only member groups are eligible for Matching Grant awards of up to $2,000 to assist in developing and expanding programs that recruit, develop, or train volunteers.

Guidelines for grant eligibility and application materials can be found under Grants and Awards on this website. Mary Earl, Director of Grants, can provide more information and guidance. Reach her at grants@operavolunteers.org


March 15 is also the deadline to submit applications for two recognition awards: Projects of Special Merit and Partners in Excellence.  Projects of Special Merit celebrates your group’s successful project, shares it with the opera volunteer community and receives recognition for a successful volunteer-conceived and volunteer-executed project.  Member groups likewise are encouraged to recognize an individual who has given outstanding volunteer service to opera with a Partners in Excellence award. This award can also recognize a group milestone or accomplishment.  More information can be found under Grants and Awards.

Registration continues for the 2016 Opera Conference on May 18 through May 21.  OVI will again join Opera America in fascinating and beautiful Montreal.  Register for the entire conference or just a OVI weekend special.
