SUPPORT US

The power of theatre to unite us knows no boundaries. Whatever our backgrounds, whatever our circumstances, we all have the capacity to feel a sense of wonder, to be dazzled by the sights and sounds, to love, to laugh, and to cry.

Live theatre performance draws out these emotions, and when we feel them, we feel them together.

As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we depend upon the contributions of many individuals and organizations in our community whose gifts allow us to create transformative experiences both on and off the stage.

MAKE A
GIFT TO CATCO

BECOME A COMMUNITY PARTNER

It is a privilege to produce theatre for our thoughtful and engaged audiences, as you challenge us to do better, think deeper, and laugh louder. In turn, we hope that we inspire you to do the same.

By making a gift to CATCO today, you are supporting our mission to produce transformational high-quality theatre, foster local artists, and engage our community with outreach and education programs for students across central Ohio.

Gifts of stock, especially long-term appreciated stock, provide benefits to both CATCO and you. CATCO can put your stock donations to immediate use and you can:

  • Give away appreciated assets and usually avoid a tax gain.
  • Receive the regular charitable income tax deduction if you itemize your taxes.
  • Claim a tax deduction for the full, fair-market value (rather than the cost value) of your stock if you have owned the securities for more than one year.

Please contact us and let us know the name of the broker who will handle the transaction for you, the name of the stock, and the number of shares you are donating (example: 500 shares of XYZ Stock) so that we can be aware that the gift is forthcoming. We will also provide you with CATCO account information to make the transfer.

For information about stock transfers, please contact Christy Farnbauch at cfarnbauch@catco.org

For your reference, our Tax ID is #31-1168461
