Support Stage 3 Theatre Company
We couldn't continue presenting great theatre if it weren't for the generosity of our supporters:
Donors, Volunteers, and Advertisers.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation at whatever level you can afford. To
acknowledge your generosity, your name will be prominently displayed on our lobby wall
as well as on this website. We have giving levels to suit every budget. Since we do not provide free tickets or offer any other goods or services, your entire donation
goes towards supporting the theater and is fully tax deductible.
- Friends of Stage 3 – This group is made up of those
members of our community who donate $10 and up. The growth of this group is vital
for the theater. With a theater as small as ours, there is no such thing as a
small donation. This group’s strength is in its numbers. We can’t hope to reach
our fundraising goal without you. Please believe how much every dollar counts!
Your name will be prominently displayed on our lobby wall, right next to our Sustaining
Members, and on our website.
- Sustaining Members – With a donation of
$500, you automatically become a Stage 3 Sustaining Member for one year. We hope that
you will want to renew your membership the following year, but there is no obligation to
do so. All Sustaining Members have a number following their names that indicates the
number of $500 donations. With 5 donations, members move up to Producers Circle and
with 10 donations to our Founders Circle. The growth of this theater has been directly
proportional to the growth of this special group. Please consider becoming a member.
Our Sustaining Members’ names are prominently displayed on our lobby wall, in all
programs and on our website. We honor all those who make a donation of $500 and up
with reserved seating
and a 20% discount on all of our special events.
- Producers' Circle – with a donation of $2,500,
or 5 contributions as sustaining member, you enter our Producers' Circle. You will receive all of the
benefits described above, including on our website. We honor all those who make a donation of $500 and up
with reserved seating.
- Founders' Circle – with a donation of
$5,000 or more, or at least 10 contributions as a sustaining member, you join our Founders'
Circle. These donors are truly Stage 3's Guardian Angels. Your names are proudly displayed
at the top of our list of donors. Many of our Sustaining Members will soon join this group.
, our heartfelt
thanks, and the knowledge that this theater simply would not exist without your generous
support is what we offer everyone in our sustaining member program.
Note: A donation of cash stocks or other assets can be made to Stage 3
through the Sonora Area Foundation. For tax purposes some people find this beneficial. Ask Hoyt Cory for
details or call SAF at 209-533-2596
Volunteers are donors too! We simply could not run Stage 3 without the help of this wonderful
group. Not only will you help keep the theatre running, but you'll make new friends and get a
chance to see what things are like behind the curtain.
If you are better able to donate time rather than money, or just think you would enjoy becoming
more involved in your community's local theatre, please
join our team of volunteers.
Advertisers and Sponsors
We invite local business, large and small, to advertise in the programs we print for each show.
It's a great way to show your support for the theatre while reaching customers in the local community.
A business card sized ad is $60 per play (that's 4 shows per week for 6 weeks, or 24 performances), or $300 for a year of all 5 plays. For more information, please contact the box office.
So, please consider becoming a sustaining member or make a contribution in whatever way you are able.
Remember: Stage 3 Theatre needs your help and EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!
