Leave A Legacy

With many audience members coming back time and time again and volunteers who have dedicated years of service, the Racine Theatre Guild builds special relationships that sometimes last long beyond people’s time with us. Through thoughtful consideration and planning, we are honored to be named in their estates or trusts, receiving bequests that go to support the longevity of RTG.

“Lights, camera, action! Whether taking my place on stage or sitting back in my seat in the audience-these 3 words never fail to raise my heart rate and ignite a sense of wonder and excitement that can only be brought by RTG.”

– Dawn Van Ess, RTG volunteer and donor

Bequests and other planned gifts have a profound and lasting effect on the artistic quality our patrons have come to expect from our productions and on the future of our theatre.

Any bequests that come to the Racine Theatre Guild are placed into our Legacy Fund, which is separate from our general operating fund. A committee manages its use and staff or volunteers must make a formal request to them to use the funds for capital or emergency improvements throughout RTG. The Legacy Fund helps improve our artistic qualities and maintain our beautiful facility for the future.

If you would like to join us in building that future, please consider naming Racine Theatre Guild as a beneficiary of your will or trust, IRA or other retirement plan, life insurance policy, land or property, life income, or other planned gift.
