[bs_citem title=”Is my membership donation tax-deductible?” id=”citem_7325-4ae3″ parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]

Yes, but you cannot deduct the fair market value of goods and services you receive as part of your benefits.  The Development team will send you a tax letter outlining the deductible portion of your donation. A general donation which is NOT for a CenterStage membership is fully tax-deductible.


[bs_citem title=”When will I receive my tax letter and details regarding my benefits?” id=”citem_130b-ad1e” parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]

The Development team will send your tax letter within two weeks of receipt of your donation along with your benefits package – unless you are donating for an upcoming season.  If so, your benefits and tax letter will be mailed a month before the new season.  If you are attending a performance within that time frame, please contact the Development office at 214-205-7854 (*temporary line).


[bs_citem title=”How long is my CenterStage membership?” id=”citem_8d0a-78d1″ parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]

Your membership runs for 12 months from the date that you make your donation and you may enjoy your benefits immediately.  You will receive a renewal letter near the end of your membership period so that you may renew without a break in your membership status.  The tangible benefits, such as parking passes and food and beverage tickets, expire at the end of every season.


[bs_citem title=”May I make my donation in installments?” id=”citem_cf8e-b92b” parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]

Yes.  We will need to take your initial payment today and we will then process your payments on your card in equal monthly installments.


[bs_citem title=”Does my donation to Producers’ Circle apply to my CenterStage membership?” id=”citem_5576-a1ff” parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]

Yes.  If you are purchasing a subscription in Producers’ Circle, you will have access to the benefits equivalent to your giving level (i.e. 2 subs = $500 total donation).


[bs_citem title=”May I upgrade my membership and apply my Producers’ Circle donation to the amount?” id=”citem_7713-e4e0″ parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]

Yes.  If you would like to receive benefits at a higher level than the total gift included in your Producers’ Circle donation, you may upgrade your membership by adding an additional donation to your order (i.e. 2 subs = $500 total donation + $500 = $1,000 Shimmering Star membership).

[bs_citem title=”May I make my donation with a check, EFT or stock transfer?” id=”citem_6119-ebc1″ parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]
Yes.  For a check donation, please mail gift, care of Development Department, to Dallas Summer Musicals, 909 1st Ave., Dallas, Texas 75210.  For EFT or stock transfer, please contact CenterStage@DallasSummerMusicals.org or 214.205.7854 (*temporary line).

[bs_citem title=”May I make my donation through a Donor Advised Fund?” id=”citem_6119-ebc1″ parent=”collapse_7df4-d690″]
Yes.  We will gladly accept gifts through Donor Advised Funds (DAF’s).  However, please note that gifts made through DAF’s are not eligible for benefits due to IRS restrictions.  If you wish to receive benefits, please contact the Development Department at 214.205.7854 (*temporary line) to learn the Fair Market Value associated with your giving level.
