While I very much want to see the Amargosa Opera House and Marta Becket's legacy succeed and thrive for many years to come, AOH, Inc. has had persistent problems with its staff and board of directors. As of January, 2017, the information listed on GuideStar for AOH, Inc. is incorrect and no 990s past 2012 are available here. The officers listed are incorrect.
Please do extensive research prior to donating to AOH, Inc. to ensure funding goes to the correct cause and is properly managed. The Amargosa Opera House is a cultural treasure, but its history over the past decade has involved allegations of fraud, embezzlement by staff/officers, a quasi-coup of the board of directors, threats, and elder abuse.

Written requests for a copy of the 990 return for 2011 on December 22, 2012 and again on December 24, 2012 were acknowledged by the organization but ignored. The copy of the 990 form for 2011 has not been provided as requested.
