Planned Giving

Planned Giving

The A.R.T. gratefully accepts support through financial and estate plans. Planned gifts to the A.R.T. provide long-term sustenance to our artistic, educational and community programs and ensure our ability to expand the boundaries of theater for generations to come. With a planned gift to the A.R.T., you maintain control of your assets during your lifetime, and your loved ones may receive meaningful tax benefits in the future as well.

There are many ways to make a planned gift to the A.R.T., from naming us in your will to creating a plan that is financially advantageous to you right now.


By including A.R.T. in your will, you help us expand the boundaries of theater for generations to come. This gift costs you nothing in your lifetime and will be exempt from federal estate tax.

Gifts by Retirement Asset

Individuals aged 70½ or older, who own a traditional or Roth IRA, are allowed to make a charitable gift, up to $100,000, directly from their IRA to qualified charities. A.R.T. is qualified and your gift to us (including your required minimum distribution—RMD) can completely bypass your income going forward. Read more for additional information about distributing your RMD to the A.R.T.
