  • Updated computers for our Office Manager and Artistic Director
  • A new office phone
  • An updated projector for NOHspace
  • An extra dimmer pack (24 or 48 channel, 6k or 12k)

And of course, Theatre of Yugen can always use restocking:

  • General office supplies (pencils, pens, paper, manila folders, clips, envelopes)

  • Professional services, especially: IT support, program and postcard printing, video taping/editing


Giving Gifts of Stock

Gifts of stock can provide greater tax savings than those provided by gifts of cash. Appreciated securities held longer than one year are exempt from capital gains taxes and entitle the donor to a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer. For specific details pertaining to your donation, please consult your tax adviser. 

To make a gift of stock, please provide the following instructions to your broker or financial institution for electronic delivery to Theatre of Yugen. 

Deliver to DTC number: 0188
Account number: 866656542
Account name: Theatre of Yugen

Please contact us at (415) 621-0507 or to notify us of the transfer details so that we can properly credit your gift and provide you with a letter for tax purposes.
