The James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation has given a $2.1 million grant to the Portland Opera, reports The Oregonian.

The donation is the largest grant in the opera company's 42-year history and will provide general operating support over three years, according to the paper, including productions, salaries and other expenses.

Portland Opera ended its fiscal year in June with a deficit of $978,788.

"This grant will help us return to our history of posting annual surpluses and increasing the balance sheet's net worth," Jim Fullan, director of marketing and public relations, told The Oregonian.
