When you choose to give to New West Theatre, you are choosing to invest in your community, the arts in Lethbridge, on-going programming and thriving theatre training and skills in children. Not sure how you can help? Contact us to discuss your options!
As a not-for-profit charitable organization New West Theatre relies on donations from individuals like YOU to produce quality professional theatre, artistic opportunities, and educational programming for Southern Alberta.
By Donating to New West Theatre you are contributing to:
- Developing job opportunities for artists pursuing their artistic dreams
- Fostering local artistic talent in southern Alberta
- Creating opportunities for children to be exposed to theatre for the first time
- Touring productions to communities without access to live theatre
- The vitality of live professional theatre in Lethbridge.
In November 2012, New West Theatre committed funds to start an endowment with the Community Foundation of Lethbridge and Southwestern Alberta. This investment in our future came from the support of individuals through attendance at our productions and donations over the last decade. In March 2013, the Canadian Heritage division of the Government of Canada matched our initial contribution by awarding us the Endowment Incentives Component grant, doubling our investment and affirming our commitment to sustainability.
As the New West Theatre Endowment Fund grows so will the return, thereby reducing the effects of fluxes in the economy on our programming, and making New West Theatre more financially sovereign.

We have so many FAQ’s on our Legacy Giving page, such as what is planned giving?
Planned Giving means you get to create a charitable gift now that goes to support New West Theatre in the future, usually after you die.
It’s “planned” because it takes some thought and preparation, and because you should consult a lawyer and/or a financial planner about it. The easiest planned gift is part of something you should have anyway – your Will.
