Planned Gifts


Gifts of Heart, Mind and Spirit

A great play can make you howl with laughter or speak to your soul. Creating “entertainment that matters” – plays that touch the heart, engage the mind and delight the spirit is what we do at Park Square. We also develop the next generation of theatre goers through our signature student programs.

The Founder’s Society recognizes individuals who have made a future gift to the Theatre through their wills or other estate plans. These gifts literally lay the foundation for the next generation of theatre goers – making each donor a founder of Park Square’s future.

Planned Gifts include:

  • A Bequest in Your Will
  • Gift of Retirement Plan Assets
  • Gift of Life Insurance Policy
  • Charitable Gift Annuity
  • Retained Life Estate
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust

You don’t need to be rich to leave a lasting legacy. You can provide for your heirs, gain important tax benefits, and even receive an income now by making a thoughtful planned gift.

To learn more about planned giving or to let us know that we are in your will, please contact Michael-jon Pease at 651.767.8497 or

Have you already made a planned gift?
Please let us know! Letting us know you have made a planned gift helps us better understand your dreams for the Theatre’s future and helps us carry out those wishes. We also want to recognize your generosity and thank you now. Allowing us to recognize you may inspire others to make a similar commitment to the future of Park Square.


Dick was the Technical Director at Park Square back when the Theatre was in the Park Square Court building in Lowertown Saint Paul.

“I’d retired from teaching and the chance to build sets and get the new space ready for them was just the opportunity I needed to practice what I’d been teaching for so long,” he remembers with a smile. Dick has turned his cottage in Lindstrom, MN into a trust for the theatre.

“My family is well provided for – the assets of my home and my cottage should go somewhere I’ve been involved practically all my life time – for me that’s the theatre.” The benefit of a planned gift is mutual – helping both the donor and the Theatre. “There are definitely good tax incentives for making a planned gift now. I’ll have five years of a tax break now… and I’ll get to use the cottage for the rest of my life.”
