Donating to the Festival:

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.  The cancelation of our summer festival in 2020 due to COVID-19 has also created challenges for us as the company plans for a return to performances in 2021.  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 2018/2019 year ending May 31, 2019!

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.

Canada Helps is Canada's largest online donation processor, and as a non-profit entity itself, is able to provide lower processing fees for charitable donations. Tax receipts are automatically sent to your email address, and the donation will be automatically transferred to Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan, which saves us on administrative costs as well. Canada Helps makes it easier for Canadians to donate by credit card, donate by paypal, set up monthly donations, and donate securities/mutual funds to avoid the capital gains tax. 

You can also do single donations through the new PayPal Giving Fund.  You are also emailed a receipt immediately, and through this link there are no fees!

To can also make an online donation to our festival through our Canada Helps Page.  From here, you can select either a one-time donation, monthly donations, or a donation of securities/mutual funds.
