Professional actors. Professional productions.


Mail-in donation form

You probably already know that ticket sales cover about half of our expenses. This is common for regional theatres our size. What you may not know is that the amount that we strive to raise each year to cover that “other half” is about $300,000. While Riverside prides itself on being efficient and lean, producing professional theatre comes with a price tag.

Your gift will help us make this season one of our best yet. Riverside Theatre is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, which means your gift is tax-deductible.

Diamonds or Denim is our annual fundraiser gala. The event features appetizers and desserts from local restaurants and cafes, fantastic live & silent auction items and a raffle drawing. Diamonds or Denim 2013 was held Friday, Feb. 22, 2012 at hotelVetro suites & conference center in the Plaza Towers, 201 S. Linn St, Iowa City.

Individual Gifts can be made to our General Operating, Riverside Theatre in the Park and Endowment funds. We also have earmarked funds, including the Janet G. Altman Fund for Music at Riverside, and the Kevin Pixa Eggers fund for Education.

Contributions can also be made in honor or in memory of a particular person.

Corporate Sponsorships are available for each production. Area businesses that support our productions enjoy a variety of benefits, including advertising, promotional and publicity opportunities, as well as complimentary tickets.

In-kind Donations of goods and services are always welcomed and appreciated. Items must be valued by the donor to receive a tax receipt. For more tax receipt questions, contact Jennifer Holan [email protected].

We are currently in need of an industrial vacuum.  If you would like to donate a vacuum, please call 319-338-7672 or email [email protected] 
(Take a look at our continuing wish list.)

Gifts of Stock or mutual fund shares can also be donated. Please contact the theatre before making the donation, to ensure proper donor acknowledgement. For information on planned giving and other donor opportunities, please contact Jennifer Holan by email at [email protected] or by phone at 319-887-1360.
