Tax information: Gifts to the Ann Arbor Summer Festival are tax deductible less the market value of any goods or services you receive as part of your donation.

Donor recognition is provided for gifts of $50 or more in the festival season following the close of the previous calendar year. For example, gifts received between 1/1/2015 and 12/31/2015 are recognized in the 2016 program guide and donor premiums are provided for the 2014 season.

Please note: Access to the member pre-sale is granted in the year a donation of $100 or more is made, although this pre-sale access does not guarantee a ticket or a specific seat. Due to the popularity of select shows, tickets may be limited or may sell out quickly. Tickets are sold to members on a first-come, first-served basis. After the member sale period ends, unsold premium seats will be released for sale to the general public.
