Options for Support

Why Donate?

  • Ticket Sales only account for less than quarter of our total revenue
  • More than half of our budget goes to paying our artists – most of them are regional talent, designers, technicians, playwrights and creative staff.
  • Having the support of our community helps us grow and allows us to secure more funding from government agencies to grow the reach and impact of our work
  • We create new work, recruit regional talent, share a downtown creative hub to support the next generation of creatives
  • We want to grow the reach and impact of our work to showcase Niagara Stories to a larger audience
  • We aim to build a vibrant downtown culture and economy together

Community Support – Donations

Essential Collective Theatre is a not-for-profit, charitable organization. We are Niagara’s own professional theatre company and an essential part of the culture renaissance happening in downtown St. Catharines. This is our 12th season producing contemporary Canadian theatre with a focus on new plays and Niagara work since incorporating as a not for profit in 2006. ECT prides itself on mentoring local emerging artists, supporting playwrights and telling stories that hold up a mirror to the Niagara Region and want our audience to be engaged in our community’s stories.

Our supporters are listed on the SIP website and in our production’s programme and a tax receipt will be issued for the full amount of your gift
