The Art of Giving

Donating to the Cherry

The Cherry Center relies on public donations to help it meet its annual goals, to build its endowment and to continue to be the premier venue for challenging, enlivening performing and fine art in Monterey County.

Ways to Contribute to the Cherry’s endowment through the Community Foundation for Monterey County

Outright Gift
Make a gift of cash, stock, bonds, real estate, or other assets. Your charitable gift qualifies for tax advantage under federal law.

Bequest by Will
Leave a legacy gift or portion of your estate to the Cherry and, in some cases, receive a significant reduction in federal gift and estate taxes. You can also name the Cherry as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.

Charitable Gift Annuity
You can make a gift of cash or property to the Cherry now, get immediate tax benefits, and insure that you or a loved one receive fixed quarterly or annual income payments for life.

Sponsorship Opportunities

The Cherry Center offers corporate and individual sponsorship opportunities for our theatrical and art events. Sponsorship is the right place for your investment because it gives your organization or business prime access to a network of engaged guests and the local arts community at large. All contributions are tax-deductible to the extent provided by the law.

Please contact our office for more information.

Thank you for your continued support!
