Arden for Always Recovery Fund

We WILL be back with your support TODAY.

Have any questions about making a donation? Email devo@ardentheatre.org and we will connect with you personally.

This current global crisis has rocked the foundation of the performing arts community and the Arden is not immune. We have shut our doors, for the time being, unable to welcome audiences to our stages.

This intermission will pass, we will be back, and the next act will be even better because we will be together.

That is why we are launching the Arden for Always Recovery Fund. This fundraising effort ensures that the Arden has a solid foundation as we embrace an uncertain future. Funds raised will support staff salaries, the development of virtual content to stay connected to our students and audiences, and will provide us the resources to resume work on our stages, in the classroom, and in the community, when the time is right.

Together, we can make certain that great stories always have a home here, and that theatre will continue to thrive in Old City.

Yes! I want to ensure the future of the Arden.

Other Ways to Give

If you would prefer to mail your gift, please make your check payable to “Arden Theatre Company” and mail to 40 N. 2nd St., Philadelphia, PA 19106 ATTN: Development. You can also call the Box Office to donate at 215.922.1122.

Matching Gifts
Double or triple the value of your gift! Please contact your human resources or corporate giving department to learn about your employer’s matching gift policy.

Stock Gifts
We accept gifts of appreciated stock, an option that gives you a tax write-off while saving you capital gains tax. For more information, please contact Ryann Carey at rcarey@ardentheatre.org.

Tax-free IRA Gifts
For those 70½ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from IRA accounts. On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 into law, legislation that includes a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover.  A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as the Arden, free from federal income tax each year.  There may also be state income tax savings.  Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift. Check with your IRA administrator or your tax adviser for more information on how to make such gifts.

The United Way
To designate your United Way workplace program gifts to the Arden, please use our Donor Choice Number: 14198. Contributions made through the United Way support our work with children.
