Twenty-one years in, it’s been a huge success: the Ottawa Fringe has grown from a scrappy volunteer-run outfit to one of the most successful arts organizations in the region, producing Ottawa’s largest annual theatre festival and the winter undercurrents: theatre below the mainstream fest; supporting new work by local artists through creation grants and the under development program; mentoring Ottawa’s emerging and new generation artists; and managing the Arts Court Theatre spaces 365 days a year.
FRIEND THE FRINGE
One time or monthly donations can be made online any time of the year. Tax receipts for amounts $10 and higher are issued automatically. Also, when buying tickets online there’s an option to top-up your purchase with a gift. Donations $10 and higher receive a tax receipt in the mail.
A donation doesn’t just support the Fringe – it supports the hundreds of playwrights, directors, actors, designers, stage managers, technicians, students, and volunteers who participate in our programs each year; it supports our mission of keeping art accessible to all, regardless of age, experience, or income; and it supports your community, ensuring Ottawa remains a vibrant cultural centre and helping keep local artists local.
And as a registered charity (no. 897771721RR0001), not only will your donation earn you our unending gratitude and the knowledge you’re supporting something special, but you’ll get a tax receipt to boot!
Since 1997 we have put more than $2 million into the pockets of independent artists, an impressive amount, without a doubt. Your generous donation will help us push that number even higher.
