Legacy and Tribute Gifts

Legacy Giving

Whether you are a long­time subscriber or attend a performance only occasionally, you know the power of theater.  An audience member wrote the  following to us, and it conveys the importance of what we do at Portland Stage:

“…This was theater at its powerful best. I think artists are cousins to prophets.   You hold up to us a finely detailed portrait of some aspect of human life, our  hearts and minds are impacted, and we become more deeply human.”

If you believe in the transformative power of theater, please consider making a  lasting gift to Portland Stage through your will or estate plan. Legacy gifts frequently provide estate tax savings, but the most rewarding benefit is the knowledge that you are playing a lead role in advancing our work both on the stage and in the community via our education programs.

If you have included Portland Stage in your estate plans, we welcome the opportunity to recognize you as a member of the Portland Stage Legacy Circle.

For information on the Legacy Circle or for further information on how to make a Legacy gift or bequest, please contact the Development Office at 207.774.1043 x109, or send an email.

Tribute Gifts

An honorary or memorial gift to Portland Stage is a great way to celebrate special occasions or to specially honor the memory of a friend or loved one. Donations may be made in any amount, with those above $250 listed in a special section of our program books. A notification letter will be sent to the honoree or family member notifying them of your kind gesture and you will receive a letter documenting your tax-deductible contribution.

You can make your gift online by selecting options under “Tributes” or please feel free to contact us for assistance, at 207.774.1043 x109 or click here to send an email.
