Like other not-for-profit arts organizations, the Weathervane relies on charitable giving for up to 40% of the annual budget – not including urgent and unexpected capital expenses like the cost of rebuilding the barn after the fire in 2011.
Together we’ve faced some extraordinary challenges and your continued generosity is always appreciated.
Each year, the Weathervane Theatre is tasked with raising over 60% of its organizational budget through grants, sponsors, and individual donations.
Please take a moment to read this year’s annual appeal and make a donation here.
Become a member of the Murray-Haas Legacy Circle by pledging a gift as part of your estate planning. Legacy gifts are not specified by amount but by designating the Weathervane as part of your planning.
– A residual gift
– A fixed gift amount
– A percentage of your estate
– Property or real estate
It is possible to specify that whatever remains in a bank account becomes a charitable gift that will pass free of estate tax and outside the probate process.
Stocks, bonds, mutual funds and other securities offer special tax benefits allowing you to deduct the full value of such gifts, including any amount that would be owed in capital gains tax if sold.
Contact Jorge Donoso, Director of Development, with any questions!

For 88 years live theatre has been cultivating the creative landscape of the North Country: first with the Chase Barn Theater and now with the Weathervane Theatre. As a non-profit theatre entering its 58th season, we rely on donations and the support of our corporate and civic partners to make this North Country tradition possible for years to come. Your participation can truly impact our ability to preserve the rich historical cultural significance the Weathervane continues to bring to the White Mountains. Thank you!
