Canadian Stage is committed to providing continuity and increasing our support for artists and creators. With your participation, we can plan for the future of theatre and artmaking at Canadian Stage.
As a registered charity, donations from theatre lovers like you are vital. Generous support from our community accounts for one third of our operating budget. Every donation makes a difference. Your financial contributions allow us to:

Grow community and accessibility
Dream in High Park is a community initiative that draws audience members from across the city to enjoy dance, music and theatre in our beautiful outdoor amphitheatre in High Park. It is a decades-old tradition only made possible through donations. Your support of our accessibility initiatives also helps provide discounted tickets and fund our education initiatives which aim to bring as many students to our theatres as possible to experience the best in live, contemporary performing arts.
