WJT relies on the support of its patrons to continue to produce high quality, professional theatre that illuminates the Jewish experience, and works to keep Jewish culture alive and well in Winnipeg.

Friends of the Theatre


The Winnipeg Jewish Theatre gratefully accepts donations to help offset the operating costs of the theatre. The following are our categories of support:

Executive Producer $5400 (Triple Chai)
Associate Producer $3600 (Double Chai)
Director $1800 (Chai)
Assistant Director $1000
Patron $100-750
Friend of the Theatre $36-99

Chai, which means “life” is one of the most recognizable symbols of Judaism.

All donations receive a tax receipt and our deepest gratitude. To make a donation or send a tribute card please call us at (204) 477-7515. Visa and Mastercard accepted.

Tribute Cards
A new way to support contemporary Jewish Theatre!

Celebrate a special occasion, congratulate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, welcome the birth of a child, recognize an anniversary, show appreciation, wish a speedy recovery, or honour the memory of a loved one. After receiving your donation, WJT will forward a tribute card to the recipient of your choice. Do a mitzvah without leaving your home or office.

Call us at (204) 477-7515.

The Izzy Peltz WJT Endowment Fund
In 1991 a future minded Board of Directors of WJT created the Winnipeg Jewish Theatre Endowment Trust. The purpose of the trust was to establish a permanent pool of capital administered by the Jewish Foundation in perpetuity with the annual income generated from the fund to be distributed to WJT to support its annual operating costs. Since its inception in 1991 the Endowment Trust has grown to $630,000 which currently generates approximately $30,150 each year towards the annual operating costs of WJT.

The Endowment Trust is an important source of revenue for WJT and is separate from our annual membership campaign. As with all of Winnipeg’s vibrant arts organizations, ticket sales generate only a small part of the revenue required to deliver the kind of professional and exciting productions that our patrons demand and deserve.

For more information call WJT at (204) 477-7515.

You Can Help!
Whether you commit to an endowment gift of $1000 or $10,000 your gift will make a difference and help ensure the continuity of WJT. Your commitment may be made by a pledge to the Endowment Trust of an amount payable over a number of years, preferably not more than 5 – and can be added to at any time – to mark a special life cycle event or as a bequest in your will.

Advertising Rates
Advertising in a WJT program is a great way to reach a very desirable demographic of Winnipeg’s influencers and decision makers. It’s also a great way to support the theatre.
