Due to its strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency, LA Opera is recognized as a 4-star charity by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.
Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating.
“LA Opera’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds LA Opera to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support LA Opera.”
“It’s important our donors trust that we’re using their donations wisely to serve the public by producing world-class opera,” said Christopher Koelsch, the Sebastian Paul and Marybelle Musco President and CEO. “Our 4-star Charity Navigator rating demonstrates to our supporters our good governance and financial accountability.”
