ACT Donor Circles
The Legacy Society

Keep ACT thriving for future generations! The ACT Legacy Society was formed to honor those who have provided for ACT Theatre in their estate or long-range financial plans. Planned gifts are a strategic way to make a lasting impact on the cultural vitality of our region by safeguarding the future of ACT. Joining the ACT Legacy Society is easy! Simply inform us that you have named ACT – A Contemporary Theatre as a beneficiary of your estate plans. All details of your gift will be held in the strictest confidence. Please let us know your plans for tomorrow so we have the opportunity to thank you today! When you do, we’ll add you to the invitation list for our Annual Legacy Society Lunch.

To discuss planned giving, please contact Clare Hausmann, Director of Development, by emailing
