Make a gift in memory or in honour

Celebrate the memory of a loved one who enjoyed theatre and Drayton Entertainment by making a memorial gift in their name.

You can also pay tribute to a friend, colleague or loved one by making a donation in their honour, or make a donation to celebrate a special occasion or milestone.

The name of the individual will appear on our website and in our annual house program and the donation will be placed directly in our Endowment Fund where it will have an everlasting impact.

What is the Endowment Fund?

The Drayton Entertainment Endowment Fund was created as a permanent financial resource to ensure the long-term viability of one of the largest not-for-profit charitable arts organizations in Canada. It is administered through the Ontario Arts Foundation.

All donations to this vital fund remain in it forever. The principal is carefully invested, while the interest generated each year is invested back into the theatre. This provides income support for various artistic and development programs on an annual basis.

Any donation you make towards the endowment will double in value, due to a federal government matching funds initiative, enabling your memorial gift to have an even bigger impact in perpetuity.

How can I make a donation?

It is easy to make a donation. To send a cheque, please indicate "In Memory Of (name)" or "In Honour Of (name)" on the memo line and make payable to:

Drayton Entertainment, 46 Grand Ave. S, Cambridge, ON N1S 2L8 (Attn. Jonathan Randall).
