One-Time Gift

We rely on the support of individuals. Our ticket sales only cover a portion of what it costs to produce our plays, bring Broadway tours to Denver, educate 58,000 Colorado students every year and inspire the Rocky Mountain region with theatre experiences of all kinds. To show you how much your support means, here's a sample of what it takes for the shows and programs to go on every year:

  • $20,000 for study guides for all audience and community members, enriching their knowledge of a particular play’s history and production.
  • $450,000 for our renowned Colorado New Play Summit, producing works by the best and brightest playwrights.
  • $830,000 to bring 17,000 students to the theatre, many of them for the first time.

Monthly Donations
A little bit or a lot, given each month, helps us plan our future more effectively. And like one-time gifts, monthly donations are tax deductible.
Quarterly Donations
Your gift, spread out in four annual payments, helps us raise the bar on our productions and theatre education programs. These gifts are tax deductible and may be adjusted at any time.
Company Matching Gifts
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any contributions made by their employees to the not-for-profit organization of their choice. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy:

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed to DCPA, Office of Development, 1101 13th St., Denver, CO 80204. We will do the rest. The impact of your donation to DCPA could be doubled or possibly tripled. Some companies also match gifts made by retirees or spouses of employees.
Name a Seat
Support the New Play Fund by "purchasing" a seat in The Ricketson Theatre. You can name a seat for yourself, in honor or in memory of a loved one or to mark a special occasion. Our New Play Fund ensures our ability to attract the best playwrights and the best stories. Your generous $1,000 donation names a seat (fully tax deductible; monthly payments are available). All donations (up to a total of $100,000) are matched dollar for dollar through the generosity of two DCPA trustees. Contact us at 303.572.4593 to learn more about our donation levels or to make a gift.
Donate Your Tickets
If you can't attend or exchange your ticket to any Theatre Company or Broadway show, you can donate your tickets back to us up to one hour before showtime for a full tax deduction.

“We have enjoyed the DCPA since we moved to the Denver area more than 20 years ago. We find the performances inspiring, enlightening and thoroughly entertaining. What we have received from the performances in our 10-plus years as subscribers is priceless, and it is our pleasure to give back as we realize the theatre cannot survive on ticket sales alone." — Mike & Elisa Ferrari
