Melbourne Theatre Company is proud to play a key role in shaping the cultural landscape of Australia – enriching the lives of audiences through fresh perspectives and powerful stories. The generosity of our Donor community is vital to being able to create and provide access to exceptional home-grown theatre for all Victorians, year after year.

Donors to the Melbourne Theatre Company share our passion and commitment to securing the future of Australian theatre and championing unique voices.

Many of our landmark initiatives, including our NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program, Education programs, Cybec Electric play readings, Deadly Creatives, Youth Ambassadors and Youth Scholarship Course, have only been made possible thanks to key investment by Donors and Foundations.

Melbourne Theatre Company Foundation provides a mechanism to receive, consolidate and distribute all donations to the Company to the areas of greatest need. Melbourne Theatre Company is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and as such all gifts of $2 or more will receive a tax deductible receipt.
