Way to Give

There are several ways you can give to support the work of Bas Bleu. The easiest way to donate is online with your credit card. Additional ways to give include:

Gifts of Cash

Another easy way to make your gift is to write a check to Bas Bleu. You may be entitled to an income tax deduction for your gift, which we will use to support our productions and general operating expenses. Gifts can also be designated to go to specific areas of function.

Matching Gifts

If you work for a company that has a matching gift program, you may be able to double your gift to us – without any cost to you.  Please contact your employer’s Human Resources Department to obtain a matching gift form.

Gifts of Appreciated Marketable Securities

Gifts of appreciated stock that you have owned for more than one year may provide important tax benefits. Please make sure to consult with your accountant and financial planner for their advice. For information about how to contribute appreciated stock, please contact the Director of Development, Stephen Snow, at stephen@basbleu.org.

Planned Gifts

There are many vehicles for making a gift beyond cash and securities. Many choose to put Bas Bleu in their will and become a member of the Bleu Moon Society, which recognizes those who have made and documented a planned gift. In addition, gifts of life insurance, retirement plan assets, and other life-income gifts are other ways to generously support our work. To learn more, please contact the Director of Development, Stephen Snow, at stephen@basbleu.org.

For information about tax benefits and other financial planning questions, Bas Bleu strongly recommends consulting with a qualified professional to assist you in your giving.

Name a Seat

Gifts of $2,500 to support capital improvements to the Tom Sutherland stage will be recognized with a plaque on one of the theatre seats and are 100% tax-deductible. Naming a seat is a way not only to leave your own personal imprint on Bas Bleu but also to honor an organization, memorialize a loved one, or distinguish your business. To discuss plaque location and availability, please email the General Manager & Development Director, Stephen Snow or call us at (970) 498-8949.

In-Kind Gifts

In addition to cash gifts, Bas Bleu accepts in-kind contributions of goods* or services.

*Please note that Bas Bleu has a vast costume and properties stock, but limited space. Therefore, at this time we cannot accept any donations of costumes or props directly through the box office or our shops. If you would like to make a donation of this kind, please email the Development Director, Stephen Snow, with an itemized list including description, current condition and the estimated value of your donation along with digital photographs. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and generosity!
