It's because of YOU!
Donate to the Centenary Stage Company and keep the arts ALIVE!
There is no doubt that the 2020-21 season was an incredibly challenging year for all. From closures, to restrictions, to reduced capacities, it seemed at every step of the way there was a new challenge, a new hurdle to overcome.
However, despite all of the uncertainty, all of the challenge, all of the change one thing remained constant - you. You are the reason CSC was able to adhere to our commitment of presenting live performing arts programming safely during these uniquely challenging times. You provided us the tools in order to create new and innovative programming such as our Front Porch Series, Recorded Live Series and Streaming Live Series. You afforded us the opportunity to present an exciting array of theatre, music, and dance events including two world premiere productions. You celebrated 35 years of performing arts excellence with us during a time when it didn't feel as if there was much to celebrate. You kept our stage lights on, our performers performing, and our audiences filled (socially distanced, of course). You believed in us, you supported us, and it is all because of you.
As we look forward to sharing an exciting 2021-22 season with you and a return to normalcy, we once again call upon you. You, who like us believe in the arts not only as a form of entertainment but as a powerful tool for strengthening economic vitality, cultural enlightenment, and community enrichment.
Because of you, we remain committed to our mission of providing high quality professional theatre that entertains, inspires and educates and as the major cultural resource of Northwest New Jersey's Skyland's region, we hold firm the belief that the arts should be a vital, accessible, and affordable part of our community. It is our hope that you will join us on our mission with you tax-deductible contribution and keep the arts alive at Centenary Stage Company for many years to come.
You are our secret weapon and you make it all happen!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON TAX BENEFITS FOR GIVING:
DYK: Thanks to the CARES ACT, the federal government has provided some new benefits for donors who want to help non-profits impacted by the current crisis.
From the IRS:
The stimulus bill contains a one-time, above-the-line deduction for cash contributions of up to $300 made to certain qualifying charities. All taxpayers would be eligible to take the deduction, even people who use the standard deduction.The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year. The new deduction would not apply to non-cash gifts or to gifts contributed to donor advised funds.
For the eight percent of individual taxpayers who itemize their deductions, the bill would suspend for 2020 the normal limit on deductions for contributions, ordinarily 50 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI) or 60 percent for cash. For corporations, the limit on deductions for contributions, ordinarily 10 percent of AGI, is elevated to 25 percent for 2020.
