Jan Abramson on why she supports Plan-B Theatre Company

Jan Abramson

Jan Abramson is a longtime donor, subscriber and advocate of Plan-B Theatre Company.

My first contribution to Plan-B was purely personal: I like Jerry Rapier, we had been on a committee working on Phase 2 construction of the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, and sure, I could donate a bit of money to the theatre company he’s involved with. Funny, a little bit of a donation years ago led to season tickets, and my commitment deepened. I’m at every ‘first Sunday’ performance; the talkback with the actors, director and playwright enhances the experience for me. Each production stretches my brain – my way of thinking – and my appreciation of what Plan-B contributes to the community.

As you are planning your year-end giving, is there a place to support socially conscious theatre? Plan B brings dimensions of art to our community that make Salt Lake richer; and they do this as one of the most fiscally conscious organizations I have been involved with.  Consider your donation an investment in the betterment of our community.

I’ve taken my annual donation a step further; several years ago, I added Plan-B to my planned giving plan. I don’t plan on departing this life any time soon (so, Jerry, don’t be counting on that gift just yet . . .) AND I do have the satisfaction of knowing that I have thoughtfully set aside a financial gift to leave a legacy to this community: the community of Salt Lake, the community of the arts, the community of those who, through Plan-B, work so passionately to share their talents with us.

I give. I talk about it . . . and I am asking you to join me, in supporting an organization that enriches our community. It’s not how much you give – it is THAT you give, to help financially support Plan-B. Thanks, in advance, for considering a gift. It’s one that will have great returns.

A week remains to support Plan-B Theatre Company in 2012.  Click here to make your contribution today, call 801.297.4200×1 or mail your contribution to: Plan-B Theatre Company, 138 W 300 S, SLC, UT 84101.
