Prospero Circle – Planned Giving

Want to join our Prospero Circle and make a meaningful gift that will have a lasting impact? When you include Seattle Rep in your planned giving, you’re able to make a significant investment in the theater's future that doesn’t impact your current financial situation and often allows you to make a more substantial gift than you could during your lifetime.

Planned gifts are simple and easy to set up, and the designated beneficiaries can be changed at any time, allowing you the flexibility and freedom to make modifications anytime you want! And as a thank you, Prospero Circle members will receive recognition and invitations to special events throughout the season.
