Endowment giving

Make your forever gift

“When you leave a gift to the endowment fund, it will live forever. I know that PTE will use my legacy to continue to draw from the phenomenal pool of local talent – actors, directors and playwrights – and that’s important to me.” – the late Jim Gibbs (a long-time supporter of PTE and the arts)


A gift to a PTE endowment fund is your legacy – it will remain, untouched, while the interest it generates will help us celebrate Canadians, for decades to come. As we approach our 50th anniversary of telling the stories of our community, help PTE look to its future.

Help PTE reach our goal of $6 million in endowed funds to secure a steady stream of income that will help us weather the inevitable ups and downs of funding.

The Funds
