Individual Giving

Approximately 35% of Syracuse Stage’s operating budget is derived from ticket sales. Contributed income makes up the remaining 65%. Individual donors provide a significant portion of Stage’s total contributed income, and they receive a variety of exciting benefits.
 
Angels Donors
Benefits for individual giving start at $50. Individuals who contribute at this level are recognized in our last playbill of the season. Contributions from $150 - $499 are recognized in all playbills of the season, and patrons who contribute $500-$1499 receive the above recognition, plus four parking passes, and an invitation to our spring “Season Sneak Peek Party” for a first look at the 2018/19 season!
