Thank you for supporting the Hamilton Fringe! The Hamilton Festival Theatre Company (o/a Hamilton Fringe) is a non-profit charitable organization and for any donation of $20 or more, you will receive a tax receipt.

Your support allows us to continue with our current programming and further expand our scope and impact. Beyond our general operations, our three primary funding initiatives are The Gilded Hammer Awards, Access the Fringe, and Youth Initiatives.

  • The Gilded Hammer Awards: Hamilton Fringe is pleased ┬áto present this inaugural celebration of achievement in the Hamilton theatre arts. You can sponsor an award designed to celebrate the fierce spirit of independent theatre artists; to award innovation and growth; to nurture emerging talent; and to recognize the national achievements of artists from Hamilton. A donation towards the event helps with cash prizes, artist fees, and more!
  • Access the Fringe: We are continuing to improve the accessibility of all aspects of the Hamilton Fringe, from our website to the venues we use, and even how artists apply to our programs. Supporting this initiative puts money directly towards our website redesign, ASL interpretation, and BIPOC Artist and Disability Justice mentorships and bursaries, to name just a few elements of our 2020 Equity Pilot plan.
  • Youth Initiatives: The Hamilton Fringe is invested in developing emerging artists and supporting young people's access to theatre. By donating to our youth initiatives, you are helping to support artist fees and workshops for the ALERT (Artistic Leadership and Entrepreneurial Training) Program, subsidized youth tickets to Family Fringe shows, summer job opportunities for young people, and more!
