Individual Giving

Individual and Foundation Giving

The Case

Each year, the Festival invites the world’s best actors, artisans, and directors to Stratford and gives them a simple directive: astonish us. With less than 7% of our budget coming from government support, we rely on the generosity of people who are transformed by their experiences in our theatres to support this extraordinary work.

Your Gift  

Membership and Playwright’s Circle programs bring you closer to the Festival and offer some very special enhancements to your theatre experience.  

Leadership giving supports artists, artisans, productions and other special initiatives.

Special Appeals let you direct your gifts to the areas that most delight you. 

Planned and Legacy and Tribute gifts help secure our future.

The Endowment Fund touches generations to come.

The Impact

Gifts by more than 16,500 individual and foundation donors contribute more than $10 million each year to support the work on our stages. Without these donations, the excellence that you expect from the Festival simply would not be possible. Your gift truly makes a difference.
