Planned Giving

The Broadway Sacramento Foundation accepts and invests legacy gifts to ensure the future of musical theatre. The Foundation is led by a board of directors who provide leadership and guidance in promoting legacy giving and overseeing the investments.

The Producers’ Circle

The Producers’ Circle was created to recognize those individuals who share our passion for the American musical, and are committed to securing Broadway Sacramento’s future. If you have already arranged such a gift, please let us know so that we can welcome you as the newest member of The Producers’ Circle.

There are many charitable giving options including naming Broadway Sacramento Foundation as a beneficiary of your will, a living trust, and a life insurance policy or retirement plan. Your attorney or financial advisor can advise you on the options available.


  • Producers’ Circle pin
  • Access to Donors’ Lounge and Courtyard
  • Name listed on website and in a playbill
  • Invitations to select events

Your Will

If you would like to make a gift to Broadway Sacramento to your will or living trust, or by naming the Theatre as a beneficiary of your financial assets, here is information needed to do so:

  • Legal Name: Broadway Sacramento Foundation
  • Address: 1510 J Street, Suite 200, Sacramento CA 95814

Retirement Assets

Did you know that retirement plans and accounts funded with pre-tax earnings are often subject both to income and estate taxes when children or others are named as your beneficiaries?

By naming Broadway Sacramento Foundation as a beneficiary of your IRA, 401(k) and/or 403(b), you will be assured that every dollar will be used for a charitable purpose (including our arts education programs for children) and shielded from income or estate taxes. You can then work with your advisors to identify other assets that are better suited to leave to your loved ones.

Another great benefit of naming Broadway Sacramento Foundation as a beneficiary of your retirement assets is this option avoids the possible delays and various costs associated with probate administration. By making a gift of your retirement benefits to the Foundation, your charitable wishes for our community can be fulfilled with greater ease and efficiency. As always, you should consult with your tax professional before making this gift.

Your future gift will ensure the future of Broadway At Music Circus and Broadway On Tour as strong vibrant contributors to the cultural life of the greater Sacramento region as well as inspire and engage children, teens and families through the education programs and experiencing live musical theatre together.

Many of our Foundation Board of Directors are estate planning professionals who can provide confidential, no obligation consultation to discuss how your estate gift may fit with your overall plan.


Jaxie & Steve Smith

"Supporting Broadway Sacramento Foundation through a planned gift is not something that just wealthy people do. We take nothing with us when we leave this earth. We should make sure that what we leave behind goes toward the core values we embraced while we were here."

Steve Kyriakis & Matt Donaldson

"As enthusiastic arts patrons, we feel passionate about helping to preserve the magic of Music Circus for future generations. By including the Broadway Sacramento Foundation in our living trust, we join all Producers’ Circle members who are proudly committed to keeping the arts alive in Sacramento."

Mike Tentis & Jeff Farley

"We chose to include the Broadway Sacramento Foundation in our estate plan because we just can't imagine the Sacramento region without the numerous benefits of BWS programs. Broadway At Music Circus is where we had our first date in 1991 and ever since our lives have been enriched beyond measure by the magic that occurs on BWS stages."

David Austin & Edward Schauberger

"We wanted to give a gift to others. A gift that will keep giving. When arranging our estate planning, we included the Broadway Sacramento Foundation. It was a simple decision. We hope our gift will give countless others the opportunity to experience art we love—theater."

Mark Viviano & Randy Triezenberg

"Broadway Sacramento has brought quality entertainment to us year after year.  Remembering BWS in our estate plan is our way to keep musical theater alive in Sacramento for future generations to enjoy."

Sandi Redenbach & Ken Gelatt

“We included the Broadway Sacramento Foundation in our estate plan because we love theatre and want to make sure it is here for future generations.”

Jabe & Journey Hammond
