Why donate

For more than 40 years we have showcased new plays, Canadian classics, and the best contemporary work from around the world, in a 19th century heritage building that has transformed over the years into one of Canada’s most beautiful and intimate cultural spaces.

Tickets sales pay for less than half of our operating expenses. We rely on government and corporations to help us continue, but without the generosity of hundreds of individual donors, our beautiful building and the quality work we produce would not be possible.

Your donation supports:

> the best contemporary theatre, showcasing national and international playwrights

> the commissioning and development of new work

> training for emerging and established local artists, including professional development workshops, apprenticeships, and our Incubator project

> audience enrichment activities, such as B4Play, Afterplay, podcasts, backstage tours and free play readings

> Belfry 101 – our signature educational program for high school students; training and engaging the next generation of theatre artists and audiences.

Tax receipts are issued for all donations of $10 or more. All donors who contribute $25 or more are considered members of the Belfry Theatre Society and are eligible to vote at the Belfry Theatre’s Annual General Meeting.
