Acknowledgements

We would like to extend a hearty thank you to the following organizations for their support of community theatre.

rbc-logo

RBC Royal Bank

for donations of both volunteer time and money in support of Shuswap Theatre. RBC has a community engagement program which encourages its employees to engage in volunteer activities in the community and backs that up with grants to those organizations. For us this has resulted in many volunteer hours and $4,000 in 2016 alone. We would also like to thank Christine Nash, one of our own members and an RBC employee, for spearheading and coordinating these efforts.

Salmar Community Association Logo

The Salmar Community Association

for its donation of $1,500 to help replace the stage door on the east wall of the theatre, and repair the wall around the door. The door frame had rotted causing it to shift and resulting in the stucco surrounding the door bulging and developing a hole. We now have a high quality, commercial, insulated metal door which is keeping the heat in and the cold out.

Community Foundation Logo Vertical

The Shuswap Community Foundation

for a grant of $2,500 from the Gertrude and Ludwig Klein Memorial Fund to purchase new sound equipment. Included are four new microphones and stands, powered speakers, cables and a 125 foot “snake” containing 20 cables. The snake will be permanently installed to make it easy to connect equipment on the stage with the sound console in the booth. This generous donation will improve the sound for our productions and make it easier for musical groups renting the theatre.

City of Salmon Arm logo

The City of Salmon Arm

for a grant of $2,000 for software and equipment needed to get the Vendini system functioning. This system has many benefits including allowing patrons to choose their seats and buy tickets on line using a credit card. Vendini also dramatically increases our ability to communicate with our audience members, our supporters and our own members.  

Shuswap Rotary logo

The Shuswap Rotary Club

for a donation of $1,500 to buy a computer, a cash drawer and a new ticket Kiosk. All three items were needed to complete the Vendini ticketing system that has allowed Shuswap Theatre to much better service to our patrons. $200 of the donation was used to complete the renovations needed to replace the stage door and repair the framing.


Sponsors and Patrons*

*What’s the Difference Between Sponsors and Patrons?

We distinguish between sponsors  and patrons due to the different tax laws that apply. A business is considered a sponsor, is invoiced for the amount of the sponsorship and can claim it as a business expense. An individual is considered a patron and receives an official receipt which qualifies as a charitable donation on his/her personal income tax.
