On Being A Non-Profit

The Fine Print Theatre is incorporated as a non-profit corporation in the state of Illinois. We are working toward our federal 501(c)(3) non-profit status. This means we will be exempt from paying taxes and your donations will qualify you for a tax write-off. (This status is retroactive for the 27 months prior to approval. So you can donate now and write off later.)

Professional theatre companies are almost always non-profit organizations. Even very established companies are usually only able to cover about half of their operating expenses through ticket sales. The rest comes from grants from government and private organizations, corporate underwriting and individual donors.

In fact, to qualify for federal tax exemption, an organization must demonstrate that it is capable of drawing on a wide base of funding. As a brand new company, we don’t qualify for most grant or underwriting support. It is individual donors, like you, that are the key to our success.
