CORPORATE GIVING

Corporate Gifts - Through a monetary gift, businesses can support and help grow one of the jewels in the cultural crown that attracts tourism and business to the downtown of Winnipeg.  Your business will be listed in PTE's programs and over 35,000 people will see your committment to the community.

Sponsorships - A marketing opportunity for businesses that can include logo exposure, entertaining opportunities and direct access to an attractive demographic. Sponsorships range from $2,000 for a Performance Sponsorship to $12,000 for a Production Sponsorship.

Client/Staff Appreciation Events - treat your clients or staff to a VIP evening at PTE.  Starting at only $2,000 for 30 guests, the evening includes tickets to a great play, complimentary parking, VIP greeting table and coatcheck, and a private post-show reception backstage with the actors.

Project Support - Outreach is very important to PTE, but projects like Downtown Drama (offering a free day of theatre classes at PTE to inner-city schools) require sponsorship funding to survive.

To discuss corporate and sponsorship opportunities, or for more information, call (204) 925-5257.
