Neptune Endowment Campaign
Since the Neptune Endowment Fund was officially launched in the summer of 2012, nearly 100 individual donors have invested in a brighter future for Neptune. Each of these donations has been matched at an almost dollar for dollar level by the federal government! As a result, the fund has grown to an astounding $2.3 million in just four years!
The Neptune Endowment Fund helps the theatre keep pace with the rising cost of producing and presenting professional theatre and maintaining a leading cultural institution for the community. It also helps us develop the performers and audiences of tomorrow, through the Neptune Theatre School and our Annual Young Company School Tour.
All donations to this important initiative stay in the fund forever, while Neptune benefits from the interest earned on the fund. The bigger the endowment grows, the more interest revenue we receive! This new source of income is important to our survival and that’s why we’ve set a new target – to double the amount of the fund to $4.6 million by 2018.
You can help us reach our goal by giving a one-time gift, making a multi-year pledge, donating public securities, or leaving us a bequest through your estate planning.
