DONATE

We offer our patrons convenient ways to make tax-deductible donations to Lamplighters Music Theatre. Your ongoing, generous support is not only vital and appreciated but qualify for our LAMPLIGHTERS DONOR BENEFITS.

Your gifts sustain one of the world’s preeminent Musical Theatre Companies, allowing us to:

  • Produce the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan (and other works of comparable wit, literacy and musical merit)
  • Keep ticket prices competitive (so people throughout the Bay Area can enjoy high quality classic musical theatre)
  • Provide performance opportunities to local theatre artists
  • Promote appreciation for the arts through youth programs, school performances and community outreach

When you donate through PayPal Giving Fund, all fees are waived. After you donate, you’ll get your PayPal Giving Fund tax receipt by email.
Donate via PayPal now.

Valued patrons who contribute on an automatic, recurring basis receive special benefits. Learn more about how the Maybud Club supports the Lamplighters.

We are always looking for top quality items, treats, art, memorabilia, lessons, services, and experiences to include in our Gala auction.

If you have something that you think would do well in the auction, download our donation form or let us know what you have and bring the form with your donation. Items can be mailed to or dropped off at our offices at 469 Bryant Street, San Francisco, or we can arrange pick up.

Ask your personnel or public affairs office if your company has a matching gifts program. Discover how you can double your own contribution by participating.

The Illuminators are those individuals and families who have demonstrated their belief in the value of the Lamplighters for future generations by including the Lamplighters in their estate plans.
