How and Why to Support Nightswimming

Nightswimming is a unique theatre company specializing in the development of new Canadian theatre, dance and music. We continue to find inventive ways to support exciting artists and to explore the boundaries of performance. We are a small company with a substantial track record . . . but we need your help.

We gratefully accept financial donations, but gifts-in-kind are also most welcome. If you can donate photocopying, printing, or office supplies, we would be thrilled to accept them. Please contact producer Rupal Shah for more information.

Nightswimming is a lean organization that devotes 80% of its revenue to artistic activities, so you can be confident that your contribution will go directly to the artists who are creating our upcoming projects. We commit to applying your tax deductible donation to a substantial new work and to acknowledging your contribution in every way possible.

Your support for the development of new Canadian theatre is vital and greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
