While gifts of any size will benefit Asolo Rep, endowment gifts of $10,000 or more can be used to establish a named endowment fund, which can be in honor or in memory of a loved one, or in recognition of an aspect or program of Asolo Rep. Named gifts create a permanent legacy while ensuring that extraordinary theatre flourishes in the Sarasota community.



You may choose to restrict your contribution to a specific aspect of the Theatre’s operations. The minimum gift size for a restricted fund is $100,000. These gifts provide an opportunity to reflect your personal passion or interest. Such donor-directed gifts can help underwrite:

• Creative positions including actors, directors, designers, musicians, staff and others

• Types of theatre including musicals, drama or new works

• Community-based education and outreach programs

• FSU/Asolo Conservatory graduate student fellowships

• Named facilities and their operations and maintenance, including our production center, costume shop and guest artist housing

• Technological advancements


To ensure that your designation coincides with the needs of Asolo Rep, it is important to discuss your plans with a member of the Theatre’s development staff.
Endowment gifts of $10,000 or more will be listed in print materials including the annual Season Program Book, and on our website.
Donors making outright and irrevocable planned gifts of $25,000 or more will be recognized by donor name on a plaque in the lobby area of the Theatre.
In addition, endowment donors will be recognized through membership  in our Heritage Society.
