Your Support Matters Now More than Ever!
Like our fellow arts organizations all around the world, La Jolla Playhouse cancelled its theatrical performances in response to the COVID-19 situation. This has resulted in a significant loss in revenue for our organization.
As a non-profit theatre company, La Jolla Playhouse relies on individual, corporate, foundation and government support to produce and develop new, innovative, and diverse works, as well as our countless educational and military programs.
Now, more than ever, your donation to La Jolla Playhouse is vital!
While we currently cannot welcome you back into our theaters to experience the thrill of live theater together, please know that we are working remotely to create virtual content that you can enjoy at home. We hope these initiatives will help take you a journey into our treasured history guided by staff and beloved artists, expand your mind with classes and programs you can share with your whole family, and surprise you with work by artists who are working beyond the walls of traditional theater.
During this time, our exceptional staff and artists are busy planning and developing our upcoming 20/21 Season. We cannot wait to welcome you back to our home to experience the rich, moving, and soul stirring work that awaits you in the coming year.
During these times, art is what brings us all together.
None of this is possible without your support.

The CARES ACT made notable changes to charitable giving for 2020. These updates include:
1. Taxpayers who prefer to take the standard deduction instead of itemizing may now take a one-time deduction of $300 above and beyond the standard deduction. You qualify for this deduction when you give your cash gift (s) directly to a qualifying non-profit, including La Jolla Playhouse. (Note: contributions made to donor-advised funds or private foundations DO NOT qualify for the one-time deduction.)
2. Cash contributions made in 2020 are now fully deductible up to 100 percent of a person’s adjusted gross income (AGI). Previously, individuals could take a charitable deduction of up to 60 percent of their adjusted gross income.
3. Corporations may now deduct for charitable giving up to 25 percent of their taxable income. This is an increase from the previous 10 percent.
