Dear Chamber Members,
For almost 100 years, patrons like you have counted on State Theatre New Jersey for entertainment and inspiration. Even in the “new normal” brought on by COVID-19, we’ve never lost sight of being that place for you, your family and friends, and the entire community.
The pandemic has greatly impacted how we are able to deliver the arts, but we remain steadfast in our commitment to you and continue to announce new online shows, interactive events, and free at home arts activities for you to enjoy safely in the comfort of your home. We are also taking this time to move forward with our Next Stage Campaign that includes much needed renovations made even more imperative now to allow us to safely re-open in a post-Covid world. But, we urgently need your help in order to survive this extended period of closure! Please consider making a special, tax-deductible gift this holiday season. Donations made before December 31 will also get you added tax deductions provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for 2020.
As a non-profit organization, State Theatre New Jersey depends on contributions and tickets sales to cover our operating costs. Now that ticket sales have been severely diminished we must rely heavily on individual giving to get us through this period. As a Broadway Season Ticket Holder we know you value what State Theatre provides and your donation today, of any comfortable amount, will mean so much. Please, take a moment to make a much-needed gift to help us continue providing you—and thousands of other individuals who benefit from the arts access State Theatre offers—the arts you love and appreciate, now and for another 100 years!
For more information or if you have questions, please contact Leah Anglum, Manager of Patron Relations & Development Operations at 732-247-7200, ext. 512 or LAnglum@STNJ.org. And, check out a full listing of updated member benefits here.
I look forward to the day we can welcome you and your loved ones back to our newly renovated facility. Until then, I hope you enjoy your holiday season with many of our online offers.
Warmest wishes and happy holidays. Stay safe and healthy!
Sarah K. Chaplin
President & CEO
State Theatre New Jersey
P.S. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides tax incentives for donations made in 2020 so make sure to give before December 31. As always, please consult your tax advisor for more information.
