Giving to Farmers Alley Theatre

Thank you for your interest in making a tax-deductible contribution to Farmers Alley Theatre! While there is a strong and positive demand for the theatre's productions of popular and new work, ticket sales cover only a portion of our operating budget. As a nonprofit theater company, we depend upon the generosity of individuals to help us to continue our mission: to create a product that entertains while inspiring, educating, and communicating with audiences to reflect on the diverse human experience.

How do Matching Gifts work?

All you have to do is fill out the matching gift forms (which can usually be obtained from the Human Resources department or an online portal), and then submit them to the appropriate personnel or intranet site. Your employer will validate the donation, and will send a check of the same value (or higher, depending on the parameters of the program) to Farmers Alley Theatre.
