West Gippsland Arts Centre is an integral part of our local community, offering a place to create and explore, to train and learn and to enjoy a wide range of theatre and events delivered right to the doorstep of people living in regional Victoria.
Core funding support from Baw Baw Shire Council and the Victorian State Government is crucial to our day to day operations and we commit heavily to providing affordable, high quality facilities and programs for our local schools and community to share and enjoy.
However, with the additional assistance of generous donations from individuals and philanthropic organisations, we can add considerable extra value to our program, enabling us to reach new audiences and develop inspiring new projects, both in the venue and out in the broader community and across the Shire.
Right now, we are investing significant funds provided by all three levels of government in a major venue upgrade which will position West Gippsland Arts Centre to serve our growing region for many years to come. Extra funds raised through donations from individuals and groups will provide additional equipment and opportunities which will further enhance the services we can offer in the refurbished facility.
Your donation would assist in many ways, including supporting our current redevelopment.
There are multiple ways in which you can support WGAC.
• Our ‘Dedicate a Seat Program’ allows patrons to place a personalised plaque on a specific seat within the theatre. Depending on the donation amount, patrons will be rewarded with a variety of benefits, such as acknowledgements, VIP memberships and a number of complimentary tickets. More information on our ‘Dedicate a Seat’ can be found HERE.
• You can donate any amount directly to WGAC by cash, cheque or card by visiting HERE and following the prompts, by visiting our Bookings Office, or by calling our Bookings Team on (03) 5624 2456. Donations made to us directly are not tax-deductible.
