It was an easy decision to include THT in my estate plan because The Hanover Theatre is a huge part of my life. I’m joyful to know that my donation, when combined with other gifts, will fund endeavors to support the vision and goals of the organization while ensuring continued opportunities for learning and entertaining experiences for future participants.
