Supporting Your Local Theatre
As a not-for-profit, charitable organization, Drayton Entertainment relies on the generosity of supporters like you to help bridge the gap between administration and production expenses. While 80% of our annual operating expenses are met by ticket sales, we still need to raise over $1 million each year just so we can continue to present professional, quality theatre at a reasonable price for everyone to enjoy. Making a donation also supports our youth, education, and engagement programs that help enrich the life of the community.
We offer many ways to support your local theatre: you can join our family members or attend a special event, make a planned giving pledge or engrave your name on a theatre seat or floor tile. Every donation makes a difference!
Tax receipts are issued for donations of $20 or more.
Drayton Entertainment is a not-for-profit arts organization and complies with the Ontario Charities Directorate of the Canada Revenue Agency. We do not employ outside organizations or individuals to raise funds for annual operations. Drayton Entertainment Charitable Business Number: 12591 1313 RR0001.
Join our family of Members for free ticket exchange privileges up to 24 hours prior to performance, priority ticket booking access and much more!
Have a favourite seat at the theatre? Your name, or the name of a loved one, can be engraved on the plaque attached to the armrest.
Engrave a special message on a lobby floor tile at the Hamilton Family Theatre or the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse.
Provide ongoing funding to support the theatre's operations and productions. The principal of the endowment is invested and the returns are used to support the theatre's programs, while the principal remains untouched.
Celebrate the memory of a loved one by making a memorial gift in their name, or honour someone special by making a gift in their name.
