Ways to Give


Patrons are our leading advocates and ambassadors. When you support us with a gift of $1,500 or more, you join a group of dedicated partners that engage with the organization, get an insider’s view of how we develop and produce new work, and understand the need for and impact of their philanthropy. Our Patrons are part of a true Playwrights Horizons family.

You’ll have the opportunity to see your gift at work in rehearsals, private play readings, special events and on our stages.  Patrons have opportunities to meet the playwrights, directors, actors, artistic staff and members of the Playwrights Horizons’ Board of Trustees who are dedicated to our work and future.

With gifts of $1,500 or more, all but $560 is tax-deductible. Contributions of any amount are fully tax-deductible, if all benefits are declined by the donor. For additional information, please contact Benjamin Weisman, Associate Director, Individual Giving, at 212 564 1235 x3145 or
