For more information on upcoming projects, please contact Karla Boos, 412-362-1713.

Matching Gifts

Many companies and organizations have matching gift programs that will increase the value of your donation. Please ask if your employer participates.

Quantum welcomes inquiries regarding individual contributions at any level. For more information, please contact Julie Deseyn, 412-362-1713.

Stock, Securities & Appreciable Assets as Gifts

Like most nonprofits, Quantum accepts stocks as gifts. The entire present value of a donated stock is tax exempt, requiring no capital gains tax. Low and no-cost methods of gifting a stock include re-titling your existing holdings and/or setting up Direct Stock Purchase Plans or Dividend Reinvestment Plans in our name.

Stocks can be transferred online or by mail. If you are interested in making a stock contribution, please email Julie Deseyn or call 412-362-1713 for more details.

IRA Distribution as Gifts

The Charitable IRA Rollover, or qualified charitable distribution (QCD), is a special provision allowing donors to exclude (and count toward their required minimum distribution) transfers of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) assets that are made directly to public charities, including Quantum Theatre, from taxable income. As no tax is incurred on the withdrawal, gifts do not qualify for an income tax charitable deduction, but instead are eligible to be counted toward an individual’s minimum required distribution.

If you are 70 ½ or older, the QCD allows you to make direct transfers from a traditional or Roth IRA of up to $100,000 per year to permissible public charity like Quantum Theatre.

This information is not intended as legal or tax advice. Quantum Theatre strongly advises that you consult your professional advisor(s).
