Ways To Give

As you consider your gift options, you may wish to contact the DRAA at 925-295-1470 for advice on a particular method that will best suit your needs and interests.

Outright gifts of cash will have immediate impact, are deductible for income purposes to the full extent allowed by law, and may be made by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, Master Card, and American Express). Pledge payments may also be arranged by contacting the DRAA office at 925-295-1470. To donate using our secure online site click here.

Donor Benefits

Depending on your giving level, donors are eligible for benefits that include invitations to special events, an annual pass to Bedford gallery and Ticket Office vouchers to use toward a performance. To learn more about joining membership please visit our Donor Benefits section. You may also decline donor benefits to receive the full tax deduction for your gift.

Matching Gifts

Increase the power of your charitable giving by doubling or tripling your gift. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees, retirees and/or spouses. Check with your employer to see if you are eligible.
