What happened to subscriptions?
We’ve taken the last year to re-evaluate how Synetic interacts with our audience and we’ve found that a more holistic way to engage our patrons is with a Membership as opposed to a Subscription. Whereas a Subscription ties you to certain shows and performances purchased well in advance, a membership allows you to see the shows you want when you want at a discounted price. Moreover, it gives you a similar discounts on concessions, merchandise, streaming, camps, class, and other programming we have yet to cook up! This year we will not be offering subscriptions and only offering memberships.
Is a Membership the same as a Donation?
Think of it like squares and rectangles. All memberships are donations, but not all donations are memberships. Memberships are classified as charitable donations which makes them tax deductible* minus their fair market value.
Can I still make regular donations?
Please do! Memberships are a special kind of donation that carry benefits, but Synetic still relies on donations from generous people like you outside of memberships! If you are interested in making a donation in addition to your membership or would prefer to only make traditional donations, click here.
How do I access the Membership benefits?
Once a Membership is purchased and you have received an email confirming that purchase, discounts on tickets will be automatically applied to your cart during future check-outs. It is important that if you plan to buy tickets and a Membership on the same day that you purchase a Membership as a separate transaction first. Then log-in following the instructions in your confirmation email and add the desired tickets to your cart. This will ensure that your discount is applied correctly. If you prefer, a member of the Box Office staff can assist you over the phone.
Other benefits like discounts on concessions, camps and classes may require a discount code that will be sent via email to members. As always, Synetic’s staff is here to assist you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns regarding your Membership.
