Your gift today, in any amount and through any of the avenues below, helps us continue Mark Morris: Above & Beyond, our campaign to raise $25 million by 2020 (our 40th anniversary season!) for major initiatives – capital expansion, increased programming, and legacy planning.
From underwriting new works to supporting free community programs, charitable donations in any amount play an important role in making our work possible. As a donor, you can contribute to our success and be eligible for full tax deductibility of your gift.
When you join or renew as a member, you receive a year of great benefits, such as: advance access to tickets, special discounts, invitation to special events, personalized ticketing service, and more relative to your giving level. Memberships are fully and partially deductible to the extent provided by law.
This newly launched program engages art enthusiasts, professionals, students and parents 21-45 years old to provide a year of insider access through artist meet-and-greets, films, discussions, exhibitions, and more.

More Ways to Give
