Stocks & Mutual Funds

Donating appreciated stocks and mutual funds is one of the easiest ways to make a gift to the IRT. The Theatre will receive funds from selling the investments, and you will receive a charitable deduction based on the value of the investment when donated.

To donate stocks or mutual funds, contact your broker and ask them to contact Lindsey Horan at either lhoran@irtlive.com or 317.916.4833 to receive the IRT’s account information.


Corporate Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gifts to nonprofit organizations that their employees support. Accessing the generosity of your employer can literally double (or more) the impact of your gift.

Check out our Corporate Matching Gift page to see a list of employers that have matched gifts to our organization and talk to your HR department to get more information on your company’s policies. 


IRA – Required Minimum Distributions

Individuals who are age 70.5 or older and must take required minimum distributions from their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) may donate using this method. Your IRA manager can make a check payable to the IRT and forward that check directly to us. Donations you make to nonprofits in this way will count towards your minimum distribution and will not have to be counted as income in the year given, reducing your income tax liability.


Donate a Vehicle

The IRT has partnered with AutoDonation.com to accept a wide variety of donated vehicles and equipment. Once your donated item is sold at auction, the IRT gets the proceeds and you get a tax deduction. While the most frequently donated items are automobiles, we can also accept boats, motorcycles, motor homes, snow mobiles, farm equipment and more. Click the link above for more information or to start a donation.


Tribute Gifts

Honor the arts enthusiast in your life with a tribute gift to the IRT! Gift can be made to celebrate a large variety of occasions, including anniversaries, birthdays, and retirements. You can also make a gift in memory of a loved one who has passed. You will receive a tax receipt for your contribution, and the gift will be recognized in the IRT Program Book. We will also send a notification letter to your honoree or their family.
