The direct support of the members of our audiences and of our neighbors in the community is a true testament to the success of the work on our stages.

Planned giving allows our supporters the opportunity to designate special gifts, now and in the future. Many vehicles exist to structure planned gifts, including bequests, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts, retirement plans, and charitable gift annuities. Please discuss these options with your legal or financial advisor to determine what strategies might work best for you. Call Jason Smoller, Director of Development, at 212.255.0270 ext. 104 with questions about how your plans today will support the Irish Rep and our creative mission in the future.
Beginning in 2004, Irish Rep embarked on a capital funding campaign to purchase and completely renovate our beloved 22nd Street home. The first stage of this goal was achieved in 2007 when, with substantial support from our loyal patrons, we purchased our facility. Funds are still being raised to achieve debt-free ownership of the space and to complete the theater’s renovations and we hope that you will consider making a contribution to ensuring an permanent home for Irish Repertory Theatre within New York City’s cultural community. Every gift, large or small, means the world to us!
