How You Can Help
Thank you for thinking of Affordable Theater. Your support is what allows us to continue to bring great live affordable theater to the area. There are many ways to help support ATI.
The easiest is always the donation of money. This can be done directly by one of a few methods. The first is by dropping something into one of our donation boxes. Any donation, no matter how small, is appreciated. The second is by sending a check to ATI at the address on our contact page. If you’d like your donation to fund a specific program, just let us know and we will gladly direct your gift to the right place. Lastly is an online donation through PayPal. Click the button below for instant donations. Using this method you can donate with any major credit card.
ATI also happily accepts donations of items. Fabric, paint, clothing, tools, building materials, etc. are all invaluable in the running of a theater. If you would like to donate an item to ATI, please contact us.
If you think online shopping is a great way to face your gift list...
...you can now benefit a worthy cause and get a tax deduction while you shop by using iGive. Make a purchase from any of the 500 plus iGive merchants, and a percentage of your purchase becomes a donation to ATI! You will even benefit from exclusive iGive coupons and deals.
When we became aware of iGive, we looked at it carefully before deciding to join their program. They don't barrage you with emails. They don't sell your information to anyone else, and they actually do what they promise. Plus, there’s no cost or obligation for you or us.
So, how do you make this happen? Well, first you sign up with iGive. Click here and follow the instructions to join iGive. You can also do a search for “Affordable Theater” on the iGive site.
Once you’ve signed up you can go to the iGive Mall and click on any merchant. Your purchases will automatically generate donations to ATI. If you always forget to go to the iGive Mall first (like we sometimes do), you can download the iGive shopping window, which reminds you when you’re visiting an iGive merchant site.
Do you have friends that shop online, too? Forward the URL to this page, or the iGive link directly.
Spread the Word
One of the best ways you can help ATI is by letting schools know about our programs. Sarah’s Troupe performs at schools free of charge, or for a small donation. Drama Department in a Box provides low cost resources for schools that are losing their drama departments. If you know a child, or have friends or relatives attending or teaching at a bay area school, let them know about the programs, and ask them to contact us. We are working hard to bring live theater back into bay area schools, but we can’t do it without your help.
No matter how you decide to help, thank you again from all of us here at Affordable Theater!
