When you sell investment securities, such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds, you owe taxes on the increase in value of the securities. If you held those securities for more than one year, you may owe capital gains taxes on the increase in value. When you donate securities that you have held for more than one year to a qualified charitable organization, like The Rep, you can avoid paying capital gains taxes on the appreciation in the value of the securities, and you can deduct the full fair value of the securities as a charitable contribution (subject to certain limitations). You should consult your income tax advisor for full details.

IRA Distributions
If you are 70 ½ or older, take advantage of your IRA required minimum distribution to make your contribution. You can avoid paying income taxes on those distributions while maintaining your annual support.

Reasons to Give

The Rep is unique in that our theatre company is composed entirely of volunteers who collectively provide our management, operations and artistic talent through thousands of hours of labor each year.  Their efforts are buoyed by financial contributions that are used to:

  • Maintain our facility – performance space, public areas, rehearsal rooms and workshops
  • Produce our plays – royalties, printing expenses, advertising, sets, costumes and props
  • Operate our organization – utilities, office expenses, insurance, outside services
