Making a gift to the Auditorium Theatre In Honor or In Memory of a friend, loved one, or colleague is a touching way to celebrate their enthusiasm for the performing arts, architecture, or history. To make a Tribute gift by check, please write “in memory/in honor of ___” in the memo line and include the area you’d like to support (e.g. Restoration Fund).
If you’d like someone to receive notice of your gift, please also include his/her mailing address. Gift amount will not be included in the notification.
You could double or triple your annual gift to the Auditorium Theatre if you, or your spouse, works for or has retired from a company with a matching gift program. Complete a matching gift form from your human resources office and send it in with your gift. We will take care of the rest. Every matched gift qualifies toward your place in one of our Gift Recognition Societies.
Planned Giving – The Echo Society
The Echo Society recognizes those caring individuals who have graciously informed us they’ve decided to remember the Auditorium Theatre in their wills or estate plans. Participating in The Echo Society makes an everlasting difference, and allows you to make a substantial gift without weakening your day-to-day resources or assets.
The Auditorium offers sponsorship opportunities for all of our programming. We welcome corporations, foundations, and individuals to partner with the Auditorium. Call today to discuss your options as a Season Sponsor, Series Sponsor, Production Sponsor, or Special Event Sponsor.
The Auditorium provides appropriate recognition for all sponsors, including website, advertisement and program inclusion, lobby signage, marquee exposure, lobby activation, tickets, and other custom benefits matched to your interests and needs.
One of the most advantageous ways to contribute to the Auditorium Theatre is via a gift of stock, or other securities, such as bonds or mutual funds. The total value of your gift is tax-deductible provided it has been held for at least one year, and there is no obligation to pay any capital gains tax on the appreciated value. The gift is fully deductible as of the date it arrives in our account.
Electronic stock transfer information can be found here.
The Auditorium Theatre does not receive any information that identifies you as the donor when your stock is transferred. Therefore, we kindly ask that you alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to donate. Please notify us of your gift by calling 312.341.2364 or by completing this online form.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to the Auditorium Theatre and other charities. Donor advised funds can be used towards any of our Gift Recognition Societies or these areas of support.
