Ways to Give

You play a vital role! Our generous supporters are as essential to Long Wharf Theatre as the actors, directors and playwrights whose work you see onstage.

As a nonprofit organization, Long Wharf Theatre relies on individual, corporate, foundation, and government support to make our vision of theatre for everyone a reality.

Planned Giving

Gifts of Appreciated Stock

Gifts of appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year can provide important tax benefits: (a) you can deduct the full fair market value of the stock as of the date of the gift; and (b) you will also avoid the capital gains tax on the appreciation.

For instructions to contribute appreciated stock, please email members@longwharf.org.

Long Wharf Legacy Circle

Include the theatre in your long-term philanthropic plans—through bequests, retirement plan designations, life income gifts, and other deferred gifts. For more information on how you can become a member of the Long Wharf Theatre Legacy Circle, email members@longwharf.org.
