Will you join our growing group of recurring donors?

Establishing a monthly, quarterly or annually recurring donation generates sustaining support for SOPAC.

Make a Recurring Donation

SOPAC relies on the generosity of our supporters to serve the community through inspirational and educational arts experiences, and to bring world-class entertainment to the SOPAC stage.

You can easily set up your recurring donation with the amount and frequency at which your credit card will be charged. SOPAC has nearly 100 recurring donors and greatly appreciates the increasing number of sustained supporters. 

As a recurring donor, you will also receive membership benefits equal to the total of your annual giving. For example, a $15 monthly gift will include Ambassador level membership with presale access, ticket discounts, complimentary tickets, invitations to exclusive member events, and a special SOPAC thank you gift.

Recommend a gift to SOPAC through a donor-advised fund!

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to make tax-efficient donations with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. All DAFs are managed by a sponsoring organization that administers the fund, such as Schwab Charitable, Fidelity Charitable, the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Metrowest NJ, and many others.

Grants recommended to SOPAC through DAFs can be designated in two ways:

  • For SOPAC to use wherever the need is greatest
  • For SOPAC to use toward a specific program that matches your own interests, such as arts education or gallery exhibitions

SOPAC’s tax ID number is 32-0074004.

Great Reasons to Engage in Planned Giving Today

I want to be remembered

I want to make a difference

I want to choose my legacy

SOPAC is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 charitable organization with a focus on serving the South Orange-Maplewood community. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.

IRA Charitable Contribution

The IRA charitable contribution allows taxpayers aged 70½ or older to donate up to $100,000 from their individual retirement accounts (IRA) directly to charitable nonprofits, without it counting towards their adjusted gross income. This tax incentive can provide needed support for the work of arts and cultural institutions like the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC).

Leaving a Gift in Your Will

A gift to SOPAC in your will leaves a lasting legacy, ensuring that the arts continue to enrich lives in our community for years to come. A simple sentence is all it takes to include SOPAC:

“I give to the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC), a nonprofit corporation currently located at 1 SOPAC Way, South Orange, NJ 07079, or it’s successor thereto, ______________* [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”

Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Donations can be made to SOPAC in honor of or in memory of a loved one. These tribute gifts are recognized and acknowledged in SOPAC’s program and newsletter. Naming opportunities are also available.
