Become a Donor

Donors are the lifeblood of CFRT, with contributed funds making up 50% of our annual budget. Every dollar makes an enormous impact, helping us hire more than 125 contract artists, reach more than 50,000 patrons (including 20,000 children and youth!), and sustaining our dedicated staff. Whatever you can contribute, whether it’s $5 or $5,000, we are grateful for your support! 
Donor benefits begin at $150 when you become a Patron. Patrons get access to The Opening Night Lounge (with complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks and light snacks!), and an invitation to THE PATRON PARTY & SEASON REVEAL where our most dedicated supporters get first look at the upcoming lineup of shows! At other levels, donors unlock additional benefits, invitations (like our FIRST LOOK which takes you behind the scenes and into a technical rehearsal!), and more!
Thank you for your support and helping to ensure that world class theatre isn’t a world away!
