The Linda Garrity Legacy Giving Guild
In the summer of 2017, we were profoundly moved to learn of Dr. Linda Garrity’s strong belief in sustaining the Madison-area arts organizations she cherished. In her estate plan, she made a bequest to support the long-term health of Forward Theater Company, and her extraordinary contribution will become the inaugural leadership gift in an eventual endowment campaign to secure our future. We celebrate Linda’s philanthropic commitment with the launch of our Legacy Giving Guild named in her honor.

Linda passed away earlier this year, and will be greatly missed by all of those who shared their lives with her. She was a devoted, loyal and close companion to her friends, and treasured her deep one-on-one conversations with them. A dedicated, empathic psychologist and psychoanalyst, she was deeply committed to helping those in emotional distress overcome the barriers to leading happy and successful lives.

We wholeheartedly thank Dr. Garrity and others who have already made a commitment to preserve Forward Theater Company’s significant impact on the lives we touch both in the Playhouse and in the community we serve.

If you have named Forward Theater as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan, or if this is something you would like to consider, we would relish talking with you about what you’d like to achieve with your gift – the legacy you’d like to leave for audiences, artists, and our community for generations to come.
