The Erwin H. Johnson Memorial Fund, Inc.

To promote opera in Buffalo, NY & Niagara Region


 The EHJ Memorial Fund Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation supporting
and promoting opera in
Western New York and especially the idea of a dedicated
performing arts space for opera and ballet.

Going into our 34th year, we are dedicated to enhancing the cultural fiber of our
community with our three operatic concerts presented every year.
We give grants for performances to local opera companies, and gift children
tickets  to local opera productions.
We offer a yearly scholarship to a deserving young singer, in addition to
organizing and promoting Celebrate Opera Day/Week in WNY/Ontario and
Singing it Forward, our own Opera outreach educational program for children and adults.
