Please make a Gift to the nonprofit Princeton Garden Theatre. Your support is the foundation of our success. With your help, we’ve transformed the Garden into a top Art House Theater with superb films and outstanding weekly specials, like National Theatre Live, Hollywood Summer Nights, and Prof Picks.

Ticket sales cover only 50% of our operating expenses. Your Annual Appeal gifts are a major part of our ongoing success.

Exciting improvements still to come. Our planned projects include: upgrading our digital projection to 4K and reinstalling 35mm film projectors; installing new PA and computer ports for Q&As, presentations, and filmmaker appearances; and enhancing our lobby and theater lighting.

Are You 70½ and will be taking a Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA? Contact your financial advisor or the firm holding your IRA or Beneficiary Inherited IRA to request a Qualified Charitable Distribution (“QCD”). IRA accountholders who have attained age 70½ or older, may take tax-free distributions from a Traditional or Beneficiary IRA and donate the amount distributed to an eligible tax-exempt charitable organization. (You may take a QCD from a Roth IRA; however since these distributions are generally tax-free the same tax benefits will not accrue and alternate means of contributing these monies may make better tax sense.) The Princeton Garden Theatre, LLC is a 501(c)(3) organization which qualifies under the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Code to receive these contributions. Please ensure that the custodian makes the check payable directly to “Renew Theaters (Garden Theatre)”. You may not take receipt of these funds and then issue a personal check for your contribution and qualify for the special tax considerations of the QCD.

The QCD amount can represent all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (“RMD”) for the tax year; or more should that make sense from a tax and estate planning perspective. The total of all QCDs for a single tax year cannot exceed $100,000 per individual taxpayer. The QCD will be reported by the firm holding your IRA to you and the IRS on Form 1099-R as a normal distribution (Code 7) based on your age. You must document the tax-free qualification to the IRS on your Federal income tax return (Form 1040). Please visit the IRS web site www.irs.gov, or contact a professional tax advisor for more information. The Garden Theatre will provide you a letter confirming your contribution and this should be retained with your tax records.
