Did you know that the average life span of a community theatre is a short 3 to 7 years? Yet, the Rochester Repertory Theatre has been growing strong for 36 years. And in June 2019, we purchased the building that we have occupied since late in 2007!
Our artists and volunteers commit countless hours in sharing their talents. The purchase of tickets does help keep our doors open, but “keeping the lights on” requires much more. Your tax-deductible contributions are more important now than ever before.
The Rochester Repertory Theatre is a 501(c)(3) charitable, non-profit organization supported by over 300 volunteers including actors, directors, production personnel, house managers, ushers, as well as an engaged Board of Directors working toward achieving our mission, “to provide theater productions of the highest quality that will challenge, develop, and enhance the skills of directors, actors, designers, and technicians, while intriguing, challenging and delighting our audiences.”

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 Rochester Repertory Theatre, 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.
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.
