The King’s Theatre Foundation was established in 1995 for the purpose of creating an endowment – an investment fund – which would address the future financial stability of the theatre. The capital fund created by gifts to the Foundation ordinarily cannot be distributed and must be held for long-term growth unless otherwise specified by donors and consistent with regulations and our bylaws. However, a contribution out of the fund’s growing funds derived from investment income is given to the theatre each year, as determined by Foundation Board Members in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Contributions to the Foundation can come through several vehicles cash, wills, life insurance policies, gifts of stocks and bonds, and other financial long-term arrangements. Currently, the largest source of income is bequests, but in recent times the most frequent source of donation is in the suggestion in obituary notices that “in lieu of flowers”, gifts should be directed to the King’s Foundation.

Donations intended to support current operations or specific current capital projects ordinarily should be given directly to King’s Theatre Society.

Contributions can be directed to King’s Theatre Foundation, PO Box 670, Annapolis Royal, NS B0S 1K0.

* Donations are eligible for a Charitable Tax Receipt.
