Ways to Give

Our patrons are as essential to Long Wharf Theatre as the actors, directors and playwrights whose work you see onstage. As a nonprofit organization, LWT relies on individual, corporate, foundation, and government support to bring world-class theatre to its stages and dynamic partnerships and education programs to its community.

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 Angela Nietopski, Development Operations Manager, or contact by phone at (203) 772-8257.

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 Angela Nietopski, Development Operations Manager, or call (203) 772-8257.
