Join our Partners, Donors, Volunteers and Other Supporters
We want to thank all of our donors for 2019-2020 and their support! Without them, we could not do what we do for all of you! There are many ways individuals donate. Consider different levels of Planned, Legacy and Estate Giving, Individual Sponsorship and/or the Brick Project outlined below.
The Depot Theater plays a vital role in celebrating southwest Kansas’ legendary history, unique cultures, and regional traditions by providing theater and performing arts experiences representing a vibrant regional community. While the vision and talent of those who have gone before inspired our nonprofit’s mission, it is the dedication of legacy gifts that will sustain the effort into the future. Planned giving will ensure the future of this important historic and cultural asset and will assure the finest performing arts, vital educational and inclusive community programs.
There are, of course, many ways to make a legacy gift. The most direct is to add this simple language to your current will:
“I hereby give and bequeath to the Depot Theater, a not-for-profit organization in Dodge City, Kansas, [state: “% of my estate”, “the sum of $____” or “the residue of my estate”) under this will after the deduction of all debts, funeral expenses, and administration expenses, but before the deduction of my death, inheritance or estate taxes, it being my intention to exonerate this bequest from contributing to the payment of any such taxes.”
Planned gifts are a variety of charitable giving methods that allow you to express your personal values by merging your family, financial and charitable goals. While planned gifts can be made with cash as noted above, many are made by donating assets such as stocks, real estate, art pieces, or business interests.
- Bequests – Include the Depot Theater in your will or trust by designating a written amount or percentage of your estate or property.
- Life Insurance – Designate the Depot Theater as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy.
- Retirement Plan Asset – Donate all or a portion of your annual Minimum Required Distribution or designate the Depot Theater as the beneficiary for a percentage of your retirement plan.
- Securities – Stocks, bonds or mutual funds may be donated and may aid your loved ones in avoiding capital gains tax on appreciation.
- Property – From grain to cattle, from art to jewelry or real estate, gifts of real property are welcomed.
We are honored to have partnered with the Community Foundation of Southwest Kansas and are happy to connect you to the Foundation for a review of your current plans or to establish a plan that meets your personal financial goals while supporting the future of the region’s premiere theater and performing arts space.
