Make a Gift Today

We are your theatre. We tell your stories.

The Arden is a theatre you can point to with pride; an integral part of the cultural fabric of this region’s artists, audiences, and students. Your gift will allow us to continue to invest in our community, bring to life new stories on our stages, reach new audiences, inspire more children on stage and in the classroom, and provide Philadelphia artists with a creative home. We can't do it without your support!

Matching Gifts
Double or triple the value of your gift! Please contact your human resources or corporate giving department to learn about your employer's matching gift policy.
Stock Gifts
We accept gifts of appreciated stock, an option that gives you a tax write-off while saving you capital gains tax. For more information, please contact Lauren Hughes at 215.922.8900 x149 or lhughes@ardentheatre.org.
Tax-free IRA Gifts
For those 70½ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from IRA accounts. On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 into law, legislation that includes a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover.  A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as the Arden, free from federal income tax each year.  There may also be state income tax savings.  Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift. Check with your IRA administrator or your tax adviser for more information on how to make such gifts.
The United Way
To designate your United Way workplace program gifts to the Arden, please use our Donor Choice Number: 14198. Contributions made through the United Way support our work with children.
Planned Giving
