One thing to take into account (and its been hinted at here) is that most donations are made for a particular program or use. The thing that most non-profits need are unrestricted funds to help with the day-to-day running of the business. General operating grants are hard to come by and competitive to secure. It's along the lines of what MCW1227 just said about the salaries of executive officers. People want to donate money that they can see - money toward specific programs or productions. People bristle at the thought of their money going directly into another person's pocket. But general operating grants are essential to helping non-profit arts organizations through this remarkably challenging time. We're starting to see a small shift toward these kind of donations as more people become aware of how important unrestricted money can be to an organization. Had we a functioning and well-funded NEA, the government could help with these types of funds while donors could still 'see' their donations. Alas...

Yep, Blavatnik has a stake in many Broadway shows and facets of our culture. Same with the Schwartzmans (Bad Cinderella, Fat Ham). That’s just capitalism, and something that everyone must accept (not like) unless they’re going to live like a hermit.

The percentage of overall donations that are restricted donations varies wildly by nonprofit.  Some nonprofits won't even accept them.

No, when you're being stomped on like a worm by billionaires you can also stand up and fight like the WGA and SAG-AFTRA.

And you can learn to knit so your hands have something to do whilst sitting next to the guillotine all day long.

The Public - or at least Joe’s Pub - will let you cancel any purchased ticket immediately online for a credit. (shoutout million dollar IT!)

If you don’t use the credit by August 1, it converts to a donation. This seems smart since they can resell the refunded seat.

Just take your credit and buy a gift certificate which has a much longer timeframe for usage.
