Other Ways to Give

There are many other ways to make a meaningful impact for Montana Shakespeare in the Parks. Below are just a few:

Employer Matching Gifts 

Many employers offer matching gift programs for employees making charitable contributions. If your employer offers matching gifts, your donation’s impact may be doubled! To find out if your company offers matching gifts, click “my employer offers matching gifts” on the online donation form, and search for your company.  

You may also ask your personnel department if they have a matching gift program. If your employer offers matching gifts, request a matching gift form and mail it to:  

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks 
ATTN: Development Director  PO Box 174120  Bozeman, MT 59717-4120 
We will complete our portion and return it to your employer.   

Memorial and Honorary Giving 

Tribute giving is a great way to honor or memorialize someone special to you, and we are pleased to list honorary and memorial gift designations in our yearly program. To make an honorary or memorial gift, simply give online and click “my gift is a tribute,” then fill out the requested information. If you are giving by check, please enclose a note indicating whom you would like to honor. If you provide the name and address of the person you wish to honor, we will be happy to send them a card notifying them of your gift! 

In Kind Donations 

Montana Shakespeare in the Parks depends on generous donations from individuals and business partners in order to continue to bring high quality productions to our audiences. However, not all contributions are in the form of financial support. In-kind giving refers to contributions of goods and services that are of value to a nonprofit organization. Businesses do it, corporations do it, and so do individual donors. All in-kind donations receive the same benefits as cash donations. Possible in-kind donations include hosting a fundraising event, housing for actors, directors and designers, donations of vehicles, publicity, building materials, food, and equipment. For more information, please contact Development Director Michael D. Wainwright at (406) 994-3944, or by email at michael.wainwright@montana.edu.   

Endowment Gifts 

Established in 1987 through two matching grants from the Montana Cultural Trust, the Endowment Fund provides a way to support Shakespeare in the Parks for those donors who share a vision for the future and long term stability of the company. Interest earned supports the company's annual operating costs. The company gratefully acknowledges anyone who makes provision for Shakespeare in the Parks as a part of his or her estate planning or who wishes to make a direct gift to the Fund. This is an excellent opportunity to support Shakespeare in the Parks today and to perpetuate the company well into the future.
