Encore Society


Planned giving is a way to make a future gift through your financial and estate plans. NCTC relies on the support of our community to ensure its success and planned gifts are a significant component of that support.

By joining the Encore Society you will create a personally meaningful legacy that provides essential support for NCTC’s future. Your gift may also provide tax benefits for you or your loved ones, and will make certain that the enjoyment and enrichment you’ve experienced at NCTC is available for generations to come. 


When you include NCTC in your estate plans you can ensure that that the LGBTQ+ and Allied communities continue to have a voice, a platform and an artistic home. 

Your legacy gift will help NCTC to:

  • Express the voices of the LGBTQ+ & Allied communities in the Bay Area and on tour throughout Northern and Central California
  • Promote messages of acceptance, inclusion and understanding through our arts education and performance programs
  • Provide year-round theatre education to low income students
  • Continue our journey towards becoming the preeminent professional regional theatre producer of LGBTQ+ and Allied centered work.

Making a bequest is the most common way to provide for an estate gift to NCTC. A bequest to NCTC can be made for a specific amount, for a percentage of your estate, or even for a portion of what remains of your estate once your bequests to family and friends have been fulfilled. Click here to learn more about the types of bequests, and sample language that you might use.

Your gift will be directed to our General Fund, where it will support NCTC’s most important needs such as artist & teacher salaries, student financial aid, and program advancement. Alternatively, you can restrict your gift to support a specific purpose or program.

Encore Society members are forward thinking individuals who have invested in NCTC’s future and long-term viability. NCTC’s Encore Society members thus ensure that our high quality productions and educational theatre experiences are enjoyed by youth, artists, and the Queer & Allied communities for many years to come. Additionally, our Encore Society members inspire and encourage others, by way of example, to make similar gifts.

NCTC recognizes the generosity of Encore Society members by offering the following benefits:

  • Recognition in NCTC’s lobby and programmes
  • Pride Party & Season Announcement invitations
  • Two exclusive newsletters
  • Season-wide access for you and a guest to NCTC’s Donor Lounge
