The Stavros Niarchos Foundation has supported extensively the operation of the GNO, with most prominent stop in the two organizations’ joint history, being the development of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center, the SNF’s largest single grant, which includes new facilities for the National Library of Greece and the Greek National Opera as well as the Stavros Niarchos Park. Following SNFCC’s official delivery to the Greek State, the SNF continued its support to GNO through a grant, totaling €5 million, to ensure its smooth relocation to its new premises at the SNFCC.
In addition, the SNF supports the Alternative Stage and the implementation of its programming, with a founding grant, as well as many of GNO's educational and social activities. The SNF is the past had supported exclusively the “Opera in a suitcase” program as part of which the GNO presented opera productions free to the public, each time in a different city across Greece.
