Individual Giving

Donors play a leading role at Delaware Theatre Company. Through their generosity, they impact the lives of everyone around them by ensuring that world-class professional theatre and meaningful arts education programs always have a home in our community. With a single gift, they affect more than 35,000 people each year — from audience members to public school students; from children on the autism spectrum to individuals with developmental disabilities; from youth at risk to underserved families.

When you make a gift to DTC's annual fund, we all feel the difference. For example, a gift of...

$50-$99 (Supporters) will build one of the more than 50 original costumes designed for the plays in our mainstage season.
$100-$249 (Friends) will transform the lives of underserved teens at the Ferris School for Boys who receive access to the arts through DTC residencies.
$250-$499 (Patrons) will introduce a classroom full of public school students to professional theatre performance through DTC's Theatre in the Schools program.
$500-$999 (Supporting Cast) will fund part of a week's salary for one or more of the professional actors from Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago who star in DTC productions.
$1,000-$1,999 (Ensemble Members) will create the opportunity for a child with developmental disabilities such as Down's Syndrome or autism to participate in our Totally Awesome Players programs.

To thank those who generously support our artistic, education and outreach programs, donors making gifts of $50-$999 receive the following benefits at each level:

Supporters ($50-99): Donors at this level receive listing in Delaware Theatre Company playbills for one calendar year.

Friends ($100-$249): Benefits of level above and a discount card valid for 10% off DTC's concessions for the current season.
