Your Donation to Proctors Makes a Difference

Each year, several hundred thousand patrons (including 40,000 students) come to Proctors to enjoy a live performance, GIANT screen movies, educational programs and special events. Additionally, long-term rentals like The Green Market, graduations, and dance recitals help to support our claim to be the region’s premier gathering place for a communal arts experience.

Proctors is a not-for-profit organization that has positively impacted the Capital Region since 1926. From our early vaudeville roots to our role today as a nationally recognized Blockbuster Broadway venue for shows like Wicked and Disney’s The Lion King, we remain the region’s brightest star and an industry leader.

For the last two years, straight, a national research company has reported that Proctors is the region’s #1 entertainment destination!*

Unfortunately, ticket sales alone do not fully cover our operating costs, so we rely on foundations, corporations and individuals like you to meet our annual need of more than $3 million dollars. Your support enables us to bring a diverse selection of quality performances to Proctors, provide community engagement and education programming and create a vibrant destination for entertainment, business and living.

Make your gift today and take pride in supporting a significant community asset. In addition, you’ll enjoy exclusive benefits which may include the opportunity to purchase tickets before public sales begin, priority seating, complimentary beverages in our VIP lounge, and many more.

Every donation, whatever its size, is vital – and very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Great news! The Charitable IRA Rollover has been reinstated for 2015 - and permanently extended into the future.   

As a supporter of the arts, this means that if you are age 70 1/2 and older, you can make a rollover gift (of up to $100,000) from your IRA to Proctors in 2015 that benefits both you and the amazing work we do at Proctors.

Although you cannot claim a charitable deduction for a Charitable IRA Rollover - this IRA distribution does count towards your minimum required distribution and will not be taxed as income.  It is a tax-free transfer from your IRA account directly to Proctors.

Remember, if you would like to make this gift in the upcoming year - the transfer must be completed by December 31. Please consult your financial planner or accountant for more details.
