Canadian Opera Company - Donor List 2018, partial 2019

Toronto, Ontario - A unique approach to recognize financial support. Published in the first two months of 2019, the file has the label ....

2018 / 2019 Individual Supporters
??? Why use such a tab so early in the year?
a note on the file uses February 14th, 2019 as the cutoff date, very odd

Cdn Opera Company has multiple LISTS, another unusual donor recognition strategy that is used in some other Arts organizations. No attempt has been made to differentiate donations for the period in question as some names appear on several lists. 

NOTE: the use of the term Sponsor is most likely a substitute for the term DONOR
