Traverse Theatre is a not-for-profit organisation, and we rely on the generosity of our Supporters to continue championing new stories and storytellers.

As a registered charity, the Traverse receives regular public subsidy, however, this usually only accounts for less than 1/3 of our income. We raise the remaining funds by relying on the support we receive from Trusts and Foundations, corporate partnerships, grants, and passionate individuals. Any profits we generate from box office income, our script shop, our bar and any of our other activities, are ploughed back into creating new writing theatre and offering opportunities to develop the next generation of theatre makers and theatre-goers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the arts sector and our theatre. Since the onset of the crisis, we at the Traverse were determined to lean into the challenges, using online, outdoor, and modified indoor spaces to connect with our community. While we carefully manage outputs, continuing a period of recovery and reopening, we need your support.

We are extremely thankful for all those who have supported, and continue to support the Traverse Theatre and its extraordinary community of artists and audiences. By donating to the the Traverse, you support the discovery of new talent, the staging of ambitious productions, and opportunities for everyone to experience our theatre and tell their stories with us. Your donation will help us to discover and develop creativity in those who tell stories we all want - and need - to hear.
