Gifts of Stock & Mutual Funds

Now, more than ever, our historic, nonprofit theater needs your investment in our future. Since March, The Music Hall stage has been dark and without the performances and events that bring our community together. The impact of the pandemic has been felt by The Music Hall, artists, local restaurants, and businesses alike. Undaunted, we have found new ways to serve our community while making Music Hall history!

New From The Music Hall:

  • Livestream performances
  • Livestream from our stage
  • Online theater arts classes for kids
  • Theater arts school residency virtual performance

Please help to keep our momentum going. An effective way to make a bigger philanthropic impact while receiving greater tax advantages is with a gift of stocks or mutual funds.

Gifts of Stocks & Mutual Funds

You may claim a federal (and possibly state) income tax charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of donated securities that have been held for more than one year, and you avoid paying tax on appreciation in value while you held the security. Best of all, it is easy to do!

The Music Hall will be forever grateful for your generous and tax-smart support of our historic, nonprofit theater when we need you the most.

If you prefer to make an individual gift or corporate contribution, that is always a great way to support The Music Hall.

Thank you! 

*New Charitable Tax Deduction Rules: The Federal Government’s CARES ACT {sections 2204 & 2205} has changed rules so that individual donors can now take an above-the-line charitable deduction of up to $300 without having to itemize taxes. For other individual donors, 100% of individual cash gifts can now be deducted against adjusted gross income. For corporations, the 10% limitation is increased to 25% of taxable income.
