Donate today to support concerts, careers, and community!
The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall is operated by the Berkeley Music Music Group, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our success comes from people who believe that The UC Theatre is a rare opportunity for community revitalization with a broad and diverse impact on music, culture, education, and quality of life in the Bay Area. We are sustained by people who buy tickets to our shows and who donate to our Annual Fund and Capital Campaign; without this generous support, we would not be here!
The UC Theatre Annual Fund: You can support our organization’s operating costs, Education Program, and ensure that we will continue our mission to present a vibrant and diverse range of live performances to advance the understanding and appreciation of music, culture, and education.
The UC Theatre Capital Campaign: Our renovation is not yet complete, and we have more operating equipment to purchase including but not limited to a Theatrical Lighting System and Sound Boards. The Capital Campaign continues as The UC Theatre completes the build-out due to construction challenges and delay from this grand old 1917 vintage building and the purchase of operating equipment.
Other Ways to Give: There are many ways to support our efforts to renovate and reopen the historic UC Theatre, including monthly donations, matching gifts, tribute gifts, and gifts of stock.
Did you know that appreciated stock with big gains is the most tax effective way to give?: A gift of appreciated stock (that has been held for more than one year) to a non-profit organization such as Berkeley Music Group can provide you (donor) with two tax benefits: (1) a charitable deduction equal to the average price of the stock on the day it transfers into BMG’s account and (2) avoidance of any capital gains tax on the appreciated stock. Please consult with your tax accountant.
The Berkeley Music Group is thrilled to announce that philanthropist Tad Taube and Taube Philanthropies pledged an extraordinary $1.3 million matching grant in support of The UC Theatre project in 2015!
Every dollar up to $1.3m donated to our Capital Campaign was matched and thereby doubled. We sincerely appreciate the generosity and passion generated by the Taube Challenge, helping us to Turn on the Lights at The UC Theatre Taube Family Music Hall!
