As critical as annual cash gifts are to TBR, bequests, deferred gifts and other tax planning approaches – or planned gifts – represent a unique and mutually beneficial way of giving. Planned Gifts are a satisfying way to support TBR and at the same time plan for your own financial security and that of your family.
Your legacy gift will help Theatre Baton Rouge maintain the programs you have supported and cared about during your lifetime and ensures the continuation of a strong theater arts center for the whole community.
If you so choose, your gift will be added to TBR’s Endowment Fund as permanent capital for the theater, with only the interest that accrues from the principal used to fund our programs.
Join the TBR Endowment Fund when you include the theater in your financial plans with any number of different gift planning options. Since patron Ed Steimel joined the Endowment Fund, he has urged others to join, saying, “...we can build a permanent future for TBR if we give a little of what we have…acknowledging [the theatre’s] gift to us.”
Did you know that tickets sales pay for only 70% of production costs? In our commitment to provide affordable quality live theatre to our community, TBR needs your help to bridge the 30% gap in order to bring a wide variety of exciting productions by the community, for the community. It's your generosity that keeps the performing arts accessible and affordable for everyone.
