Help Support our Triumphant Return to the Stage

We are here today because of you. While our doors remained closed for the last year, your support has allowed us to stay connected to our audiences, students, and artists. By streaming archived productions and producing an innovative digital season of new theatre works, we have been able to compensate over 100 artists.  Our Arden for All education outreach program has continued, with our teaching artists conducting virtual lessons in over 80 partner classrooms. And Arden Drama School classes for all ages were held remotely, providing high-quality theatre education for our students.

While we have been grateful for the opportunity to remain connected virtually, we know that nothing can replace the energy and power of live theatre.

As we prepare to return to the stage in January 2022, producing a five-show in-person season, you can make a difference! Would you consider making a tax-deductible donation today to support a triumphant return to live theatre?

If conditions allow, we hope to add an additional production or special event in the fall to reunite even sooner. We are eager to share the same story in the same space once again, and we are moving forward with renewed hope while keeping health and safety our top priority. As we venture into this new chapter, we look to you, our Arden family, for support.

Please consider helping us make a safe and strong return to the theatre by making a tax-deductible donation today. Your support ensures that the Arden will be back producing great stories like A Streetcar Named Desire and Into the Woods, created by Philadelphia’s best artists.

Yes! I want to support the return of live theatre.

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. Check with your IRA administrator or your tax adviser for more information on how to make such gifts.
