Every time the lights go up on stage, a costume brings a character to life, a visiting musician wows an audience ... those are the examples of how contributions to SJCT help make the magic happen. And there are many ways you can provide that financial support.

  • UNDERWRITING:
    Maybe you or someone you know would really like to see a certain jazz band perform on the Whittier? How about a pianist or a dance troupe? Through underwriting, we can help you make that happen. By investing in a particular group or event, an underwriter helps offset the price of those tickets so that more islanders can attend and experience the high quality arts that we so cherish on this island. A couple of friends could also get together to underwrite something they really want to see here. Contact Artistic Director Bobby Ryan at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • ESTATE PLANNING:
    Consider naming the Theatre as a beneficiary in your will. We encourage you to contact your financial advisor to learn more about the variety of approaches available (including charitable gift annuities), providing donors the special satisfaction of knowing the lasting benefit they've created.
  • MEMORIAL GIFTS:
    Many San Juan Community Theatre members and patrons choose to remember a loved one with the uniquely enduring tribute of a bequest to the performing arts. This is a very personal memorial and one that recalls the lives of those who have gone before us in a positive gift that we accept with special thanks. Names of those recognized appear in Arts Notes and the bequest itself will support any program you choose if you prefer a specific Theatre program to a general gift.
  • DEDICATED GIFTS:
    Is there a particular area of the Theatre that you would like your gift to support? SJCT welcomes dedicated donations, from subsidizing ticket costs or targeting interests such as dance, classical music or children’s programs.
