Did you know that transferring gifts of appreciated stock to Trinity Rep could give you substantial tax advantages? Capital gains on the amount of appreciation are avoided, and you receive a tax deduction for the stock’s full market value.
Does your employer match gifts? If so, they could double or even triple your support of Trinity Rep. And, because Trinity Rep credits all matching gifts to their initiating donor, you would get the increased visibility and benefits associated with the higher level of giving.
More than 1,000 companies match donations made to Trinity Rep by their employees. Check with your employer’s human resources department to find out whether you can make your gift go even further.
Looking for a meaningful gift for an avid theatergoer or arts lover? A gift to Trinity Rep in honor or memory of a loved one or friend is a wonderful tribute for any occasion.
All gifts are recognized with an acknowledgement letter to the recipient (or their family). You will receive a letter documenting your tax-deductible contribution. Honor and memorial gifts are acknowledged in a special section of our playbill for the duration of the season.
Honor and memorial gifts can be made securely online. Simply include your honoree’s name and contact information in the special notes section of the form.
