Chemainus Theatre Festival is a not-for-profit registered charity, and generous donations from individuals like you are vital and enable us to continue our work.
Here are the donor funded campaigns that are currently underway:
Donations to the membership program provide foundational support enabling us to plan confidently, and expand our theatrical & education programing. In return (along with our eternal gratitude) we strive to open up the world of Chemainus Theatre through exclusive member events and have a lot of fun at that same time.
An endowment fund is a long term investment for our future financial health and security. The capital is held in perpetuity, the fund grows over time, and each year a portion of the income generated from the fund is available for distribution back to support the work of the Chemainus Theatre Festival Society.
The Golden Neighbour program provides support for Chemainus Theatre’s community outreach and education programs, by donating live theatre tickets to students, families and organizations in our community and bursaries for students with financial need to attend our kids camps and academies.
The purchase of the Auris Hearing loop has been approved and we’re waiting to hear when it can be installed. This campaign will still remain open for additional donations. These funds will be used towards the purchase of headsets, enabling those without hearing aides to benefit from the system.
We are currently replacing the internal cushioning our theatre seats. There are still seats available in the left and right sections for sponsorship. This campaign will continue to be ongoing until we reach our goal of having all 274 seats restored.
