Friends of PassinArt

FAQ:

Q: What is Friends of PassinArt?

Q: What does Friends of PassinArt do?

A: We plan and organize activities, events and campaigns to raise money for and public awareness about PassinArt’s artistic programs and community services.

Q: How is Friends of PassinArt organized?

A: We are a standing committee of volunteers under the aegis of PassinArt’s Administrative Leadership Team and Board of Directors. Administrative tasks are managed by a volunteer steering committee. 

Q: Who can join Friends of PassinArt? 

A: All members of the community are welcome as Friends upon payment of annual membership dues ($35 – Working Friend) or by making an annual financial commitment ($350 or more – Donor Friend) that renew automatically each year on their join date.  
All youth are welcome as Friends upon payment of annual membership dues ($10) that renew automatically each year on their join date.

Q: Are dues tax deductible? 

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.

Q: What is the time commitment for Friends? 

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.
