OUR IMMEDIATE NEED
How you can get us to Opening Night!
Our spirits are lifting! The period of separation is nearing its end and we are preparing to safely gather once again. But, we need your help to get us to a full house on opening night! These past months have brought many new and unexpected costs to Everyman. Staff reevaluated the entire patron and artist experience from the stand point of safety. Then, there were the additional costs to safely rehearse and film these productions. In the new virtual space, tickets needed to be sold by household instead of by seat, which cut ticket sale revenue by more than 50%. Now, more than ever, we need your help to make sure Everyman continues to be an artistic home for you and our community.
And, an anonymous donor has generously agreed to match, dollar for dollar, all new and increased gifts made by June 30th, so your gift will now go farther than ever!
Donate today to ensure that live theatre comes back strong to Baltimore. We’ve kept the ghost light on, but we need your help to get us to Opening Night!
For questions or to make a gift over the phone, please contact the Development Department at 443.615.7055 x7500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Extension of IRS guidelines as part of the CARES Act
GREAT NEWS! Tax law extensions this year can make it even easier to secure a tax benefit with your donation to Everyman!*
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed on March 27, 2020 made several changes to tax law for individuals which were extended for the 2021 tax year in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA 2021) signed on December 27, 2020. For 2021, itemization is not required in order to take advantage of this opportunity to support Everyman Theatre and secure a tax benefit!
If you take the STANDARD DEDUCTION you are eligible to deduct up to $300 per person ($600 for joint filers) in computing your Adjusted Gross Income for cash contributions made to a qualifying 501(c)3 organization in the current tax year.
If you ITEMIZE YOUR DEDUCTIONS you will be able to deduct up to 100% of your AGI for cash contributions made in the current tax year. No more than 40% of your 2021 charitable contributions may be made to private foundations, supporting organizations and donor advised funds. This new 100% limit is applied after considering all other Adjusted Gross Income limits on non-cash contributions/carryforwards. Any excess cash contributions not deducted in 2021 can be carried forward.
