‘Tis the season for giving, and here at the Weinberg Center for the Arts, we are forever grateful for the love and support of our community. In the spirit of the season and with an eye on preserving the cultural landscape of Frederick, here are just a few ways that you can give back this holiday season…
Combined Federal Campaign (CTC)
As one of the largest workplace giving campaigns in the world, the CTC provides over $8 billion for charitable organizations. It is the only authorized petition of federal employees in their workplace on behalf of official charities. Through this campaign, federal workers can choose from a list containing thousands of certified charities to support. To donate to the Weinberg, you can make a payroll deduction gift – or, you can make a one-time pledge if you click here and use the Weinberg Center’s 5-digit organization code (78651).
Maryland Charity Campaign
The Weinberg is inordinately proud to be a part of the MCC. Much like the CTC, the Maryland Charity Campaign is a workplace campaign which allows state employees and eligible retirees to contribute to charities using the convenience of payroll deduction. Serving over 900 charities, the MCC strives to impact communities, both far and wide and bring relief to those in need through educational, environmental, human service and local, state, national and international health organizations. Their goal is to raise $3 million in 2017 to benefit the welfare of Marylanders and support arts organizations, like the Weinberg. To donate to the Weinberg through the MMC, please click here and use our EIN number #52-1900511 to find us.
Community Investment Tax Credits Program
This program offers certified 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations like the Weinberg an apportionment of state tax credits to make our organization more attractive to potential donors that wish to support the many projects and events here at the Weinberg. In providing our non-profit with tax credits, those of you that donate to our approved projects can earn tax credits equal to 50% of the value of the donation. The tax credits this program offers are in addition to the deductions on federal and state taxes as a result of a charitable contribution.
Frederick County Bank Matching Challenge
The Weinberg Center has a multitude of membership experiences for those interested that come with considerable benefits. If you are considering becoming a part of the Weinberg family, now is a great time — because the Frederick County Bank has offered us a generous challenge gift so long as we can raise $2,500 between now and December 31! To help us meet our goal you can: Become a new member for as little as $50, make a mid-season upgrade of your existing membership, or, if you’re under the age of 35 you can join our Under 35 club for (you guessed it) $35.
Every donation is appreciated here at the Weinberg Center, because it is through your dedication that we are able to do all that we set out to accomplish. This holiday season, we would like to thank you for your years of support. With your help we can continue to bring about many more years of entertainment and education. From our family to yours, happy holidays!
See you at the theater!
