LET US RISE HIGHER

The early days of the COVID-19 pandemic were characterized by uncertainty. Each day brought with it some new obstacle that required our full attention, only to be outdone by whatever obstacle came next. Though much is still unknown, one thing has become abundantly clear: you are our guiding star, and our inspiration for what comes next!

Thank you to everyone who has played a part in supporting us through these difficult times. We have been overwhelmed by your support these past six months, and thanks to these gifts, we have been able to offer some virtual school programming this fall, we will be streaming play readings of the classics you love, and we are planning for a safe reopening. Meanwhile, the pandemic continues to affect our ability to earn revenue, so we are relaunching our Rise Together campaign, which will help us maintain our facilities, offset programmatic costs, and support our staff. We hope to rise higher than ever, and you have shown us how that is possible.
 
As you know, the Fall is usually when we open our doors; it is also when students normally return to school. When we think of the future of our theatre, we think of our student audiences. As we have seen some of you return as supporters, become new donors, or even go above and beyond, we know it is because you have felt a connection to our art and community.  That spark changed your life, and we hope you will help us offer that gift to the next generation as well. Will you support A Noise Within’s future with a gift today? Your past support has brought us this far, and you can help us take our next steps.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,  

Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott
Producing Artistic Directors

COVID Relief Updates 

The economic relief bill is making donating to charities more convenient and encouraged than ever! As part of the new stimulus package set forth by the United States government, you now have the ability to donate up to $300 “above the line” to a nonprofit organization for which you will receive a 100% tax deduction on your 2020 tax return. Whether you itemize your deductions or not, making cash donation up to $300 under this new bill to A Noise Within will help us support our staff, artists, and keep the local economy running. 

If you are considering a donation, please think of the nonprofit organizations that have had to close their doors and cancel programming. If not ANW, someone.

CARES Act Benefits The CARES Act is making donating to charities more convenient and encouraged than ever! As part of the stimulus package set forth by the United States government, tax payers who usually take the standard deduction now have an incentive to donate up to $300 “above the line” to a nonprofit organization, which is 100% tax-deductible on your 2020 tax return (filed in 2021). Donors who typically itemize their deductions can now deduct 100% of their donations from AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) rather than the previous limit of 60%. Whether you itemize your deductions or not, making a donation under this new Act to A Noise Within will help us support our staff, artists, and keep the local economy running.* For more information and ways to give (including IRA Contribution, Charitable Gift Annuities, Stock Transfer, and Planned Giving), please visit: anoisewithin.org/support-us/ways-to-give/individual-giving/ *A Noise Within is not offering tax advice—please consult your accounting or tax professional to determine how these new rules may affect your individual circumstances.
