It’s our goal to become a competitive local employer, recruiting and retaining talented staff and artists who further our mission to produce the best in musical theatre in Greater Atlanta.

Giving monthly as a member of The Lyric’s Spotlight Society is easy and convenient and it provides a predictable base of support for the Atlanta Lyric Theatre. This is vitally important for the future of our organization.

Benefits:

Sponsor a Veteran

For each performance, Atlanta Lyric Theatre donates 20 tickets to VetTix.org so that our veterans and active duty military personnel and their families can enjoy our Broadway-quality productions at NO COST. That is a total of 1,100 donated tickets each season.

55 total performances x 20 tickets each x $42 average ticket price = a $46,200 cost!

Show your support of our heroes. Please consider making a donation to sponsor a veteran(s) today!

You can sponsor one veteran for one performance by contributing $42, you can sponsor one veteran for an entire season (five performances) for $210, or you can sponsor an entire performance for 20 veterans and their families for $840. No matter the amount, your support of The Lyric and for those who gave means so much. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much.

Stock Gifts

Atlanta Lyric Theatre gratefully accepts charitable gifts of appreciated stocks or securities.  This type of contribution often allows donors to make a bigger philanthropic impact and enjoy greater tax advantages than selling the stock and donating the proceeds.  Did you know that giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash? Donors who have held a publicly traded stock for more than one year can avoid capital gains tax and may be eligible for an income tax deduction for the market value of the stock they are gifting.  For stock held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Atlanta Lyric Theatre.

To make a stock donation via direct transfer to the Atlanta Lyric Theatre, contact Mary Nye Bennett at mbennett@atlantalyrictheatre.com.
