Give a one-time gift by credit card or check, donate monthly, or consider the Playhouse in your estate planning — choose the giving path that works best for you.
In honor or memory of a loved one
Make a gift in honor or memory of someone you love, and we will send a letter to them or their family member to notify them of your generosity on their behalf.
When you donate using our website, there is an opportunity to designate your gift and provide us with the mailing address of the recipient or their family. If you pay by check, please indicate in the memo field the name of the person and if the gift is in honor or memory. Please include a note indicating how we may reach the honoree or the family member of the person in whose memory the gift is being made.
Send a check made payable to “Westport Country Playhouse” to:
Westport Country Playhouse

Call 203-571-1131 and leave a message for Gretchen Wright, Director of Development, with your number. Our offices are closed at the moment due to the pandemic, but we are working hard to keep the Playhouse open from our homes. Gretchen or another staff member will get back to you as soon as possible.
Making a recurring monthly gift to the Playhouse allows your contribution to go further in supporting our work all year long. Choose an amount to give each month, and we will automatically charge your credit or debit card on a regular schedule. Your contributions will continue for as long as you wish and can be changed at any time. To give monthly, donate via our website and select the “Recurring monthly gift”.

Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
If you are older than 70½ years of age and have a traditional Individual Retirement Account, you have the option to lower your income tax bill for 2019 by transferring your required minimum distribution to the Westport Country Playhouse. This type of gift can be omitted from your taxable income and earn you playhouse membership benefits — even if you don’t itemize deductions on your tax return! Contact Gretchen Wright at 203-571-1131 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or ask your IRA agent for more information about making a Qualified Charitable Distribution.
The Spotlight Legacy Society welcomes individuals and couples who commit to a unique, lasting gift of support for the Westport Country Playhouse in their estate plans and/or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, retirement plan or charitable trust. Among other benefits, members receive invitation to exclusive Playhouse events where they may mix, mingle, and connect with other members.
