All youth are welcome as Friends upon payment of annual membership dues ($10) that renew automatically each year on their join date.
A: Friends of PassinArt membership dues are not tax deductible due to benefits a member receives. In addition to the soul satisfaction of supporting PassinArt, each Friend receives an eye-catching Friends of PassinArt window decal and is eligible for reduced-price tickets to all PassinArt productions, workshops, panels, talk-backs, reader’s series, gala events and cast parties. Any additional contributions above membership dues are indeed tax deductible.
A: Working Friends are volunteers who train for and staff PassinArt’s productions and events. Additionally, we are committed to creating and implementing fundraising activities. Short-term (checking people in at an event, for example) and longer-term (planning our annual Sweet Taste of the Arts gala, for example) opportunities are available. While Donor Friends are certainly welcome to do so, they are not expected to volunteer their time.
