The Legacy Society

Keep ACT thriving for future generations! The ACT Legacy Society was formed to honor those who have provided for ACT Theatre in their estate or long-range financial plans. Such planned gifts are a strategic way to make a lasting impact on the cultural vitality of our region by safeguarding the future of ACT. Becoming a member of the ACT Legacy Society is easy! Simply inform us that you have named ACT - A Contemporary Theatre as a beneficiary of your estate plans. All details of your gift will be held in the strictest confidence. Please let us know your plans for tomorrow so we have the opportunity to thank you today! When you do, we'll add you to the invitation list for our Annual Legacy Club brunch, held each year in the Fall.

The Endowment Fund

The purpose of the ACT Endowment is to produce long-term investment results in support of ACT's artistic, educational and operational efforts. Launched in 2002, the ACT Endowment has now grown to over $2 million. With your added contribution the ACT Endowment can continue to grow, providing the theatre with steady and reliable revenue into the future.

  2. Obtain a Matching Gift form from your Human Resource Office. Many companies also provide the form online.
  3. Fill out the employee portion of the form completely and mail to:

ACT would like to thank these companies for their matching gifts to ACT, and the employees who took the time to send in their forms on behalf of ACT.
