Theatre has the power to inspire and transform lives. It can help us find meaning in the world, unite us as a community and encourages us to laugh, debate and dream. For over 60 years, Melbourne Theatre Company has been at the heart of these inspirational experiences. For generations, we have nurtured artists, transfixed audiences and played an essential role in establishing Melbourne as the cultural heart of Australia.
But we haven’t done this alone. MTC Donors have been, and continue to be, essential to this work through the support and patronage of our Donors many important programs such as education, play readings, family shows and new commissions are made possible.
To ensure all donations go directly towards this work we have established the MTC Foundation, which channels all contributions and bequests to four key areas: Innovation, Education, Community and MTC Southbank.
This year the MTC Foundation, spearheaded by Chair Jane Hansen, has worked tirelessly to establish itself as an advocate and champion of MTC Donors. In September of this year, at the 2016 Subscriber Launch, Jane Hansen delivered a stirring speech highlighting the important part our Donors play in ensuring a prosperous future for MTC.
