As a non-profit theatre organization, donors are vital members of our Penfold Theatre family, espcially right now. Your gift right now will help us return to the stage - and until then, it will provide the resources to support Penfold artists and staff, along with continue to develop new work to bring you in the coming seasons. When we return to the stage, your generous gift to Penfold's annual fund will build sets, purchase props, bring theatre programming to students of all abilities, and put extraordinary artists on our stages. Thank you!


Take advantage of the new "universal" deduction this year! With the CARES Act now in place, a deduction of up to $300 per taxpayer in annual charitable contributions may be taken. This is available only to those who take the standard deduction, (for taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions). It is an "above the line" adjustment to income that will reduce a donor's adjusted gross income (AGI), and thereby reduce taxable income. A donation to a donor advised fund (DAF) does not qualify for this new deduction.





Thank you for supporting us!
