Annual Donations

ACT Donors are the theatre’s most engaged advocates and supporters. Annual donations—at all levels of giving—provide the essential funding ACT depends upon to support the art and artists you enjoy on our stages every year.

If you have not already donated to ACT, we hope today is the day we can welcome you as a donor. In thanks for your gift you can look forward to enjoying exclusive opportunities to get closer to the art of ACT with fellow theatre-goers, community leaders, and like-minded individuals.

Matching Gifts

Your generosity could go twice as far! If your employer offers a Matching Gift Program, your level of support could be doubled, or even tripled.  It's as easy as 1 - 2 - 3:

  1. Contact your Human Resources Office for eligibility guidelines. Many companies will match gifts for retirees and spouses, as well.
  2. Obtain a Matching Gift form from your Human Resource Office. Many companies also provide the form on line in an electronic format.
  3. Fill out the employee portion of the form completely and mail to:

Development Department
ACT Theatre
700 Union Street
Seattle, WA 98101-4037

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. In thanks for taking these easy steps to secure a matching gift, ACT will take into account your company’s donation when assessing your Partner level!

The ACT Theatre Endowment

In 2002 ACT launched the ACT Endowment, an imperative for the long-term viability and fiscal health of the theatre. In 2006, with the help of a challenge grant from The Kreielsheimer Remainder Foundation, ACT's endowment doubled to nearly $2 million. With your added contribution this endowment will continue to grow, providing ACT with a strong and reliable revenue source.
