TEMPE, Ariz. -- Tempe-based US Airways community foundation has donated $125,000 to the Arizona Opera and to Ballet Arizona for facility renovations.

The Arizona Opera is receiving $75,000 to help in ongoing renovations and construction on two buildings at its new Phoenix facility located on Central Avenue. The opera plans to consolidate its facilities there.

The Ballet Arizona will use a $50,000 gift to help renovate an existing building. The ballet will be able to double the size of its school once the work is done.

The airline's foundation also provides grants to nonprofits near its other hub cities in Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia and Washington.
