You get to decide where your gift goes. Education? Headwaters New Play Program? New curtains for the mainstage? Rehearsal room improvements? You choose!

Endowment Gifts

Creede Repertory Theatre’s endowment fund is designed to provide a resource that will help the theatre thrive for years to come. We invite you to join us in this effort of building a long-term refuge for the family that has been there for us since day one.

Enterprise Zone

In order to encourage support from individuals and businesses, the State of Colorado offers those who make a gift to the CRT a 25% tax credit on every donation of $100 or more. Contact the Development Director Lori Heinrich with any questions about Enterprise Zone at (719) 658-5420, Ext 2006.


Usher for a Show

Hand out programs, tear tickets, and assist patrons in finding their seats! Volunteer to usher two shows and receive one complimentary ticket!

Ushers must be at least six years old and able to pass out programs, take tickets, and/or show patrons to their seats. Ushers must arrive at the theatre 45 minutes before scheduled curtain time and stay 10 minutes after the show begins. Fun for the whole family!

Planned Giving

Arranging a planned gift with Creede Repertory Theatre may provide tax advantages for your estate while allowing you to share your passion for live theater. CRT suggests that you consult your attorney or financial advisor to arrange a planned gift through a bequest, life insurance, annuities, trusts, IRAs or other planned giving arrangements.

Planned Gifts may be made to Creede Repertory Theatre, Inc. You can make a gift to Creede Repertory Theatre in your estate by using the following language: “I hereby give and bequeath to Creede Repertory Theatre, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation in Creede, CO (specific amount, percentage of estate, or specific property) for general purposes.”

I’ve done shows here that changed my life, shows that taught me who I am and how I should choose to live.
