Additional Ways To Give:

Donor Advised Fund – A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is often administered by a financial services company or a community foundation. It allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities, like RBTL. The new tax code will make DAFs a great tool for non-itemizers who wish to bundle their charitable gifts in one year (in order to get the tax deduction) while ensuring RBTL will continue to receive annual support. If you are considering a donation through a donor-advised fund, please check with your tax adviser for details.

Stock Transfers – Gifts of stock, especially long-term appreciated stock, provide benefits to RBTL and you. RBTL can put your stock donations to immediate use and you can give away appreciated assets and usually avoid a tax gain, receive the regular charitable income tax deduction if you itemize your taxes, and/or claim a tax deduction for the full fair market value (rather than the cost value) of your stock if you have owned the securities for more than one year. Check with your financial consultant who can tell you how to take advantage of this option. If you are making a gift via stock transfer, please let us know by contacting 585-277-3343 or [email protected].

Will or Estate Plans – Planned gifts provide the resources that create extraordinary opportunities and preserve the future of RBTL. Making a planned gift enables you to have a profound impact on RBTL and may help you make a larger gift than you thought possible. To meet both your financial and philanthropic goals, there are many ways to create your legacy, from making RBTL a beneficiary in your will or retirement plan to making gifts that provide you with lifetime income. Ways you can support RBTL and receive significant tax and financial benefits include, Will or Living Trust Provisions, Retirement Plan Beneficiary, Life Insurance, Charitable Lead Trust, Life Income Arrangement, Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust, and/or Charitable Remainder Unitrust. This information is intended only as a guide. Individual circumstances will determine which planned giving opportunity is best for you. We encourage you to consult your attorney or professional advisor before entering into any planned giving arrangements.

United Way of Greater Rochester – United Way of Greater Rochester‘s mission is to magnify and focus the power of community resources to advance the common good. Every donation to and through United Way goes to help people right here in the Greater Rochester community. The Rochester Broadway Theatre League (RBTL) is one of United Way's donor designation agencies/organizations. You can donate to RBTL’s 501(c)3 arts education programs, which impact thousands of local area students each year, through your employer’s workplace campaign. Just be sure to designate your donation to agency #2559. It takes our whole community working together to reach Rochester’s goals. Join us and LIVE UNITED for our community and we can make a difference together. (United Way retains 8% of your designation as an administrative fee.)

Employer Match Program – Many places of work have employer match programs which will match your donations to charitable organizations, dollar for dollar, up to a certain amount. Check with your employer or organization to see if they participate. Designate RBTL as the recipient of your generosity with the satisfaction of seeing your donation double!
