Individual Giving

Contributed income provides 65% of Stage's operating revenue. Your inspiring generosity enables Syracuse Stage to overcome obstacles and thrive in new and unexpected ways. As we reimagine what is possible during these challenging times, your support is crucial.

Before we gratefully close out 2021 and count down with hope and optimism to 2022, we wanted to make sure you knew that the CARES Act allows for expanded tax-deductibility for 2021 contributions, even if you do not itemize:
  • Temporary Universal Charitable Deduction - Taxpayers who do not itemize their deductions can take a one-time deduction of up to $300 per individual or $600 per couple for gifts made to charitable organizations.
  • Unlimited Charitable Contributions - Suspends the 60 percent adjusted gross income limitation for individuals' charitable contributions for the year 2021. For 2021, there is no limit, making cash contributions fully deductible.
Please consult your tax and financial professionals for details. 
Angels Donors
Benefits for individual giving start at $35. Contributions from $100 - $1,199 are recognized in all playbills of the season, and patrons who contribute $300 - $1,199 receive the above recognition, plus parking passes and a first look at the 2022/2023 season.
