Did you know ticket sales only cover approximately 50% of our operating costs? First Folio relies on generous donors like you to make our outstanding productions a reality. There are several ways you can help make our season happen.
Your individual donations make all the difference. First Folio Theatre is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Equity theater company. All donations are considered charitable donations and therefore tax-deductible. And with the changes in the tax law this year, you may be able to take a charitable deduction even if you do not itemize. Check with your tax professional.
