Ways To Give


We provide quality entertainment at affordable prices, but ticket sales only cover 52% of our operating expenses.  We rely on the generosity of donors like you who understand the impact that CFRT has in making Cumberland County a great place to work, live and play!  To make a one time donation click on the donate button above!

Monthly Giving:
Monthly or quarterly donations are a great way for you to make a significant impact with out feeling the pinch!  Think of it like a gym membership for your creativity.  It helps CFRT navigate windows where we aren’t producing on the Mainstage and is incredibly meaningful!  We bill your credit or debit card automatically, making it easy to manage!
Contact Derek Jordan at 910.323.4234, ext. 221.

Season Ticket Holder and Theatre Patron:
In addition to gifts at any time of the year, we also offer the opportunity of an optional donation when you become a Season Ticket Holder, or if you would like to support the Theatre at the Patron level, a portion of your ticket is an automatic donation.

Gifts of appreciated securities or stock allow you to give a gift and enjoy tax advantages as well.  If you have owned the stock for more than a year, you may deduct the average selling price of the stock on the day of transfer as a charitable contribution, and may eliminate capital gains taxes.  Talk to your investment counselor.

Planned Giving:
Estate Planning:
 As much as we may not want to think about it, each of us needs a will. When you plan for the distribution of your assets, keep the Theatre in mind. You can make a difference for what you believe in, and we hope CFRT is one of your passions. Your bequest will have a positive influence for generations to come. For more information please go to the Leave-a-Legacy website at www.leavealegacy.org and click on “Locate Your Program.”
Real Estate: Gifts of appreciated real estate are also appropriate gifts as part of your overall estate planning.

Memorial & Honorary Giving:
Theatre Seats: If you would like to honor or memorialize someone (or yourself), then you can purchase a seat in the auditorium for a $500.00 donation. A brass plaque will be attached to the seat for a lasting memorial/honorarium.
Glass Blocks: Perhaps you would like to honor the birth of a child or grandchild, or just the joy of being a part of the Theatre. If so, you can purchase a glass block for $325.00. It will be etched (space providing) with whatever you would like it to say.

Remember that any donation you make is tax deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS.
