Do you know if your employer offers a matching gift program? Many companies will match monetary gifts made by their employees (or sometimes even their employees’ spouses) or they use volunteer hours to provide financial donations in recognition of your ongoing engagement. You can check with your company’s Human Resources Department for more information. For any questions about how to support Theatre Under The Stars through your company, please reach out to Jordan McPhail, Development Officer, at email@example.com.
When you donate stock, you may earn 2-3x of the tax savings compared to selling the stock and donating the cash. By making a stock donation, you avoid the tax gain while deducting 100% of the value of your contribution. TUTS has partnered with DonateStock to guide you in making a stock charitable gift on their secure website in 10 minutes or less. Visit DonateStock.com/TUTS to donate stock from your brokerage directly to our account. The process is fast, safe, and easy. As a donor, you will be recognized in Playbill (if applicable) for your contribution.
You can make a charitable contribution through your donor advised fund (DAF) by contacting your fund manager and recommending that they make a grant to TUTS (TAX ID # 74-162164). Please keep in mind that many DAFs do not allow for donations to carry a fair market value. Per our non-profit audit policies, a gift made via a DAF may not fulfill a previously existing pledge made to TUTS by an individual. As a donor, you will be recognized in Playbill (if applicable) for a gift made through your donor advised fund.
Did you know you can support TUTS while shopping? We have partnerships set up with retailers where a portion of the proceeds from your purchase comes directly back to support our work on stage and in the community.
