Please make a Gift to the nonprofit County Theater. With your help, the County Theater will continue to entertain, inspire, and educate our community.

Ticket sales cover only 50% of our operating expenses. Gifts to our Annual Appeal are a very important part of the rest of our support.

Your Gift works hard. Your support helps us to continue to renovate our classic 1938 theater. Your support also underwrites our special programming, which includes the highly popular National Theatre Live presentations from London.

Purchase a Star You have the opportunity to put a new star in the sidewalk outside the County Theater. Inscribed with your name or to honor or memorialize a loved one, all gifts of $5,000 or more will receive a star on the sidewalk. Gifts may be given over a three year period if you prefer.

Bequests You can help secure the County Theater’s future for generations to come by making a gift to the County Theater’s Endowment, through your will or estate. Your strategic foresight will contribute to the enduring success of the County Theater.

Are You 70½ and will be taking a Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA? Contact your financial advisor or the firm holding your IRA or Beneficiary Inherited IRA to request a Qualified Charitable Distribution (“QCD”). IRA accountholders who have attained age 70½ or older, may take tax-free distributions from a Traditional or Beneficiary IRA and donate the amount distributed to an eligible tax- exempt charitable organization. (You may take a QCD from a Roth IRA; however since these distributions are generally tax-free the same tax benefits will not accrue and alternate means of contributing these monies may make better tax sense.) The County Theater is a 501(c)(3) organization which qualifies under the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Code to receive these contributions. Please ensure that the custodian makes the check payable directly to the County Theater. You may not take receipt of these funds and then issue a personal check for your contribution and qualify for the special tax considerations of the QCD.

The QCD amount can represent all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (“RMD”) for the tax year; or more should that make sense from a tax and estate planning perspective. The total of all QCDs for a single tax year cannot exceed $100,000 per individual taxpayer. The QCD will be reported by the firm holding your IRA to you and the IRS on Form 1099-R as a normal distribution (Code 7) based on your age. You must document the tax-free qualification to the IRS on your Federal income tax return (Form 1040). Please visit the IRS web site www.irs.gov, or contact a professional tax advisor for more information. The County Theater will provide you a letter confirming your contribution and this should be retained with your tax records.
