Individual & Planned Giving
Since its founding in 1989, Queens Theatre has been embraced by a generous community of donors committed to supporting the premier venue for the performing arts in Queens. Each year, a substantial portion of our budget is comprised of the donations of hundreds of individuals and families. The direct support of the members of our audiences and of our neighbors in the community is a true testament to the success.
Make A Monthly Gift
You can provide consistent, sustainable support for Queens Theatre programs through monthly donations that can be automatically charged to your credit or debit card each month. You can cancel your monthly gift at any time.
Monthly & Tribute Gift
Celebrate the memory of a loved one by making a donation in their name. When your gift is received, Queens Theatre will promptly send an acknowledgment to whomever you designate, notifying them of your thoughtful donation.
Many public and private employers participate in workplace giving campaigns that allow employees to contribute to their favorite charities through payroll deductions. Check with your employer’s human resources or personnel office for more details. Many organizations will also match charitable contributions made by employees. Check with your employer to see if your gift to Queens Theatre can be matched - or perhaps even doubled or tripled - by your employer. Then forward your employer’s matching gift form to Queens Theatre along with your donation.
