Individual Giving


Established in 1985, International City Theatre (ICT) is a mid-sized non-profit, professional regional theatre offering performances at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, Beverly O’Neill Theatre. ICT is committed to contributing to the preservation and development of theatre as an art form, to solving problems and addressing issues in our field, and to presenting the highest quality productions and education programs possible. As such, ICT’s five mainstage productions, six education programs (offered throughout the region) and corollary activities (New Play Reading Series and community partnerships) touch the lives of more than 30,000 children, families, adults, and seniors annually, from every ethnic and economic background including those at risk of being culturally underserved due to a lack of access to affordable artistic programming in the area.

Your gift is an investment in our community’s only Professional Theatre, that is committed to our vision of bringing all people together and creating connection through the arts to honor, explore, and celebrate diversity and to better understand the world in which we live.

Did you know?

You don't have to use cash to make your gift

Donors are discovering the ease and added benefits of giving gifts of appreciated securities. The income tax deduction is the same as a cash gift, is based on the value of the securities at the time you make the gift, and you pay no capital gains tax on the transfer. ICT can immediately use the proceeds for the purpose you designate or for much-needed general support.

You can give an asset that may help us more than it’s helping you
...Such as a life insurance policy whose coverage your family no longer needs, or real estate like a second home or a parcel of undeveloped land, or even a collection of artwork that you no longer have room to display.
You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime

Name International City Theatre as a beneficiary of your will or revocable trust, or of your retirement plan.

You can make International City Theatre a partner in your giving

You can deed us your home but continue to live there.

You can turn assets into income and enjoy a tax deduction with a charitable gift annuity

This gift vehicle might be an attractive option for those who are retired, want to increase their cash flow, desire the security of guaranteed payments, and wish to save on taxes.

You can make a gift of stock by electronic transfer

This form of giving can create tax savings for the donor while fulfilling their philanthropic wishes, creating a double benefit!

If you have included International City Theatre in your estate plans, we hope you will inform us. We want to be able to recognize you for your generous intent on our Wall of Honor, and also make sure the gift will be appropriately stewarded.

Of course, a gift to International City Theatre through your estate may also lessen the tax burden to your heirs.

There are many options in making your long-term plans with community philanthropy in mind. Please contact Patrick Covert-Ortiz, Development Associate, at 562.495.4595 ext. 104, or by emailing for more information.
