Support Us

We have merch! If you want a fun way to support Mariposa, be sure to check out our online store. Shop exclusive designs, including tie-in merch from some of our projects and productions.

Individual giving

Mariposa’s work wouldn’t be possible without our generous friends and supporters. If you’ve enjoyed our events and projects in the past, and want to help us create more accessible programming in the future, please consider making a donation.

As a homegrown arts organization, every single dollar is transformational for our company – and to our network of emerging and underrepresented artists.

Note: donations to our Benefit + Awareness Month campaigns are gratefully accepted as well, and directly support the charitable cause! At this time, only donations to charity fundraisers are eligible for tax receipts.

Prize donations

If you or your business have a possible prize donation for our next Benefit + Awareness Month, please reach out to info[at]operamariposa.com or contact us below by March 31 of the relevant year. We welcome prizes that can be enjoyed at home, online, or possibly outdoors, to ensure the inclusion of our immunocompromised and medically high-risk community members. We are happy to discuss sponsorship recognition for corporate partnerships.

Please note that while we deeply appreciate all prize offers, we aren’t able to accept medical or spiritual services or therapies at this time. Thank you for your interest in joining us to support the chronic illness community!

Sponsorship

Partner with us to achieve your business and philanthropic goals, while investing in our community’s vibrant arts scene. As a Mariposa sponsor, you and your company will help foster the development of emerging, underrepresented and marginalized artists, while enhancing your company’s public profile and enjoying exclusive perks. Sponsorship packages can be tailored to your needs, and may include benefits such as high-visibility branding and publicity that reaches our diverse local, national and international audiences.
