Return To Stage Matched Giving Campaign

× Double your donation to the Return to Stage Matched Giving Campaign.

After nearly two years, the extended closure has left Chemainus Theatre financially vulnerable. Today, we ask you to help the theatre return to the stage via this special giving opportunity. We’re humbled to share that Dr. Don Hilton and Gregg Perry, together with Island Savings, Duncan Iron Works, and Chemainus Best Western Plus, have collectively pledged $85,000 toward a Return to Stage matched giving campaign.

We hope you can join these lead donors as we set to rebuilding the theatre and resuming live professional theatre. Each dollar donated to the theatre will be matched up to $85,000. If fully matched, these funds will help us through the last of this ‘great intermission’ and put Chemainus Theatre on track to produce a full 2022 season.

We are incredibly thankful for the generosity of this group and hope you will partner with them to re-ignite the stage so we can gather again for great stories and music.

Charitable tax receipts will be mailed to the address on file.

Endowment Fund

× 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.

Annual donations to the Chemainus Theatre Festival help us to deliver the very best in artistry, talent, and shows each season. However, the Endowment Fund is vital to sustain our artistic excellence and continue to build upon our projects and programs. Donations directly to the Endowment Fund will increase our financial security and provide greater annual income to the Theatre. More Information
