YOU CAN HELP

Donate today!

When you give to the CRT, you’re bringing more than 150 performances to our stages each summer. You’re inspiring audiences from around the country. You’re providing training for young actors in our internships programs. You’re bringing the magic of theatre to 20,000 young people. And so much more!

Annual Fund
Your gift to CRT's annual fund enables the theatre to create innovative productions, offer exciting education programs for young people, and remain the economic engine for our Creede community.

Honorary or Memorial Gift
An honorary or memorial gift to the CRT is a perfect way to acknowledge and celebrate a friend or loved one. Donations may be made at any level. Once received, a personalized note will be sent to the honoree or family member notifying them of your kind gesture. Additionally, you will receive a letter documenting your tax-deductible donation.

Young Audience Outreach Tour
Your gift to CRT’s Young Audience Outreach Tour helps bring professional theatre to young people in rural Colorado and New Mexico through our unique literacy initiative. Your gift ensures that each student receives a free book and an experience that will last a lifetime!

Sponsor a Play
You can sponsor a play! Your sponsorship supports over twenty productions of a play staged at CRT and gives you or your business the greatest visibility – logo on CRT’s website and in our season program, tickets for you and your guests to a special reception and preview performance, pre-show announcement during the play’s run, and much more.

Endowment Fund
Give to CRT’s Endowment Fund. Endowment funds are critical to the future health and stability of all major cultural and educational institutions. Your gift is carefully invested and when joined with other gifts, they form a strong financial foundation that will continue to grow for years to come. Your gift allows the CRT to continue to nurture artists, foster the new works of playwrights, and educate the next generation of theatre patrons and practitioners.

Legacy Circle
Join the Legacy Circle and secure artistic excellence for future generations. Many dedicated supporters have designated a special gift for CRT’s future through bequests, trusts, life insurance, IRA’s and other planned giving arrangements. These important gifts ensure that CRT will continue to be the leading repertory theatre in Colorado and the region. We invite any CRT family member who has remembered the theatre in their estate plans to become a member of the Legacy Circle.

Matching Gift Program
Many employers offer a matching gift program that allows your gift to be doubled or even tripled! Inquire with your company’s human resources department to see if your gift to CRT qualifies.

Don’t Forget!
By making a contribution to the CRT, you can receive a 25% tax credit on your State of Colorado income tax filing. The Creede Repertory Theatre is the first state-selected arts organization considered an “ENTERPRISE ZONE” project. As an Enterprise Zone project, the State of Colorado recognizes CRT as promoting and offering valuable economic development for Mineral County and the San Luis Valley. In order to encourage support from individuals and businesses, the State offers those who make a gift to the CRT a 25% tax credit on every donation of $100 or more.

Donor Benefits
