Individual Giving

Revenue from ticket sales covers only a portion of the annual budget for the Grand Theatre Presents series, school performances and community learning programs - our continued success depends on donors and supporters. People like you!

Your annual contribution will help fund educational programs for learners of all ages, preserve and protect our new facility, and ensure a lasting legacy of the arts in our community for years to come. We invite you to enjoy the many benefits offered at varied recognition levels ranging from $25 to $15,000.

Your tax-deductible contribution makes all this possible:

  • World-class institution, conveniently located downtown and with ample parking, right in your own neighbourhood
  • Amazing breadth and diversity of excellent programming in theatre, music, dance and more
  • Education programs that reach thousands of students each season
  • Special ticket programs that make performances accessible to senior citizens, students and children
  • Stellar performance space for the many cultural and community organizations that make use of the Grand Theatre facilities

Thank you for your continued support!
