Ways to Give
Recurring gifts are a budget-conscious way to make an impact for our nonprofit and you can opt-out at any time. Establish your monthly gift today and watch your investment in local arts and culture grow! Click the button below and select “Recurring Donation” under “Type of Donation” and specify your gift amount.
An individual gift, in any amount using any method of payment, to the Colonial directly supports the theatre's vibrant schedule of film, music, and performance programming. Donations ensure adequate staffing necessary for a high level of customer service and program innovation. Your act of generosity also funds the practical needs of our organization, including our two-building venue's substantial facility costs (the Colonial spends an average of $36,000 per year just on electricity!).

Planned Gifts to the Colonial Theatre are an opportunity to share your love of the arts: to transmit your values to future generations. They ensure another century of artistic expression at the historic venue. But for investments like the ones you make, the Colonial could not exist.
The Colonial Theatre Society
Legacy Society members are supporters who have made future financial commitments to ensure that, long into the future, the Colonial has the resources required to maintain its considerable facilities and offer exciting programs. This special group of donors include the Colonial Theatre in their estate plans. It’s easy to join since no immediate donation is needed. You simply need to name the Colonial Theatre as a beneficiary in your will or trust, IRA or other retirement plan. Sample language:
“I bequeath _____% of my residuary estate (or $________) to the Association for the Colonial Theatre (ACT), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable cultural organization, located in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania for its ongoing film, live arts, and special programming. Federal Tax I.D. #: 23-2846636.
