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. The value of these benefits can be found on our website under Support/Giving Levels. 

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 1/1/2017 and 12/31/2017 are recognized in the 2018 program guide. Festival membership renews annually. All benefits are based on the date of your gift and are applied towards the upcoming season. If you are interested in these benefits for 2018, we encourage you to make a gift before tickets go on sale in April. Please note: Access to 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-serve basis. After the member sale period ends, unsold premium seats will be released for sale to the general public. To learn more about the Power Circle Pair, visit our member benefits page here.
