Boston Court is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (Tax ID 56-2300086 Theatre @ Boston Court) and is registered with both state and federal agencies. That means we don’t make money from our shows. Actually, only 13% of our costs are covered by ticket sales. (You can even look at our actual tax forms from previous years by clicking the links on the right of this screen!) The rest comes from grants and donors like YOU, who love what we do. Since our founding in 2003, we’ve produced dozens of plays and hundreds of concerts, including many world premiere plays and many debuts of new or reimagined musical works. And we fund it one donation at a time.

Please consider a donation today. While we treat all of our patrons like the valued guests they are, we have some extra recognition and benefits for our donors. You can check them out at the link below. Because once you donate, you’re not just a patron anymore. You’re part of the team, creating an experience you can’t find elsewhere in Southern California.

And another benefit is that we will never sell or give away your contact information. We don’t even keep your payment information unless you opt-in to automatic payments. We’d love to celebrate your gift in recognition on our website, playbills and more, but you can always request to be anonymous as well, and even opt out of receiving emails or printed mailings. Just let us know how YOU want to be contacted by sending us an email.

All this and more helped our organization earn a 2022 Platinum Seal of Transparency! You can see our strategy, metrics, and achievements. Check out our updated #NonprofitProfile on Candidcall_made.
