Other Ways to Give to Revels

In addition to cash donations, Revels welcomes your support through gifts of stocks and securities, donation of selected in-kind items on our wish list, program advertising, and employer matching gifts.


Gifts of stock and securities

Revels welcomes gifts of stock and securities. All such gifts are tax deductible to the full extent provided by law. To donate stock, please first contact Diane Kennedy at 617-972-8300 x29 or dkennedy@revels.org to inform us of the name of the securities you intend to transfer and the approximate dollar amount of the transfer or number of shares. This information is greatly appreciated and will ensure we can accurately process and properly recognize your generous contribution.

To transfer stock, contact your broker and give them the following information:

Account name: Revels, Inc. Overflow Account
DTC Number: 0164
Account number: 7421-3176
Federal tax ID number: 04-2557549

While Revels will issue an acknowledgement letter to you following the transfer, please be sure to consult your tax accountant for the specific tax benefits you may receive for your contribution.

If you have any questions, please contact Diane Kennedy, development manager, by phone
(617) 972-8300 x29 or email dkennedy@revels.org


Program advertising

The Christmas Revels program book is seen by 18,000 patrons annually. Space reservations deadlines are in early November each year. Christmas 2016 Ad Rate Sheet will be available in late summer.Interested advertisers should contact Alan Cass, 617-972-8300 X 22.


Installment giving

If you prefer to give smaller amounts monthly instead of one large gift a year you can give to Revels in installments.  These gifts are still tax-deductible and you also enjoy all the benefits of being a Friend of Revels!

You can give in installments in two ways:

• Make a pledge and pay it off with 12 equal monthly payments
• Make a monthly gift that continues until you decide to end it

To set up installment giving, please call Diane at (617) 972-8300 x29.


Employer matching gifts

If you work for a company that matches employee gifts to cultural organizations, your donation might be doubled. If you already have a matching gift form or web application from your employer, please follow the instructions, fill it out and return it to us. If you don't know if your company has a matching gift policy, check with your Human Resource department.
