When Arden Theatre Company was created in 1988, the production budget for the first show was $48. Since those first $48 dollars, the commitment and ingenuity of hundreds of artists, students and volunteers and thousands of audience members – like you – has allowed us to grow into one of the most exciting and successful theatre companies in the Greater Philadelphia region. We are the Arden family.

Tax-free IRA Gifts
For those 70˝ or older, it is once again possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from IRA accounts. On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 into law, legislation that includes a permanent extension of the IRA charitable rollover. A total of up to $100,000 can be transferred directly from IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as the Arden, free from federal income tax each year. There may also be state income tax savings. Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift. Check with your IRA administrator or your tax adviser for more information on how to make such gifts.
