Donor Info & Securities

Donating to the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival: 

Thanks to your generosity, here are a few of the accomplishments we were able to achieve in our triumphant return to the stage this summer:

  • Over 40 jobs for Saskatchewan professional artists and students 
  • An innovative performance run of Macbeth, including the first extension in our company's recent history at our fabulous newly redeveloped site
  • Presented the sold out emerging artist showcase 'Cosmos' featuring SK Youth Poet Laureate Peace Akintade-Oluwagbeye and musician Micah Jane
  • Delivered an interactive online school tour that reached 2,655 students in 74 different schools across the province

Your donation matters - we can't do what we do without you.

Reliance on public funding is shrinking, and even when our box office is extremely successful, it can only bring in between 50-65% of the revenues required to operate an accessible and affordable professional summer theatre festival. We therefore reach out to the many generous individuals and famlies who value theatre and a vibrant arts community in Saskatoon to consider a gift to the festival.  These donations are gratefully acknowledged, and you can share a personal message of why you want to give to help us continue to offer this great summer artistic outlet to our community.

Any donation is greatly appreciated and will be acknowledged with a tax receipt if desired. Donations above $50 will be recognized here and in our festival program.  Scroll down to see these amazing supporters for the 2020/2021 year ending May 31, 2021!

By donating to Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan, you are contributing not only to the success of our company, but also to the continuation of the Arts in Saskatoon.
