Ticket donations to local nonprofits

ticket donations

Berkeley Repertory Theatre gives back!

We’re happy to donate tickets to Bay Area nonprofit organizations for use as a fundraising tool. Berkeley Rep tickets make a hot auction item—often garnering more than their face value in the heat of the auction moment! We process over a thousand voucher requests every year, donating to more than 99% of the organizations that follow these guidelines.

To ensure adequate processing time, mail your request to us approximately two months prior to your event.

We only accept voucher requests that are addressed to us on your nonprofit’s formal letterhead. We’re unable to process requests that have been faxed, emailed, or hand-delivered. Please send your request and a self-addressed stamped return envelope via USPS to:

  • Ticket Donation Committee
    Berkeley Repertory Theatre
    999 Harrison Street
    Berkeley, CA 94710

Requests addressed to specific employees get significantly delayed and are sometimes returned to the sender unopened.

You must include ALL of the following information in your request:

  • The date of your event
  • The name of your organization
  • An address to which we can send a voucher
  • The name of a contact person and their phone number
  • Your organization’s nonprofit tax ID number

We do not have the capacity to respond to phone calls or emails requesting donations or to follow up on requests already submitted.

Donations from us will be mailed via USPS two–six weeks before your event. We cannot, under any circumstances, arrange for you to pick up a donation or to expedite any requests.

Some restrictions apply to voucher requests and to the vouchers themselves.

We offer vouchers to Bay Area nonprofit organizations within the 93901–95999 zip code range. Only one voucher (good for two tickets) may be requested per fundraising event. Only one donation per tax ID number will be granted each season (August–June). General restrictions are listed on the voucher, are summarized in a letter to you, and are located on our website. It is important that you include this information, as well as the expiration date listed on the voucher itself, in your description of the item. Berkeley Rep will not be liable for honoring any terms other than those specified on the voucher. Vouchers must only be used for fundraising purposes.

We do not require a confirmation of receipt or tax letter for our donation.

While we enjoy hearing from you, we ask that you conserve your resources by refraining from adding us to your newsletter, annual report, periodical, or event invitation mailing lists.

Thank you for your interest, we wish you much success in your fundraising endeavors!
