The National Theatre School has established itself as a world leader in the field of theatre education through its ambition, large-scale projects and constant progress.

Major gifts are at the heart of its success.

Make a major gift

By making a gift of $5,000 or more to the National Theatre School of Canada, you become one of the organization’s major donors. Your support significantly funds the mission of the School and gives it the opportunity to develop new initiatives that will shape the future of theatre.

Be an integral part of our success!


In addition to supporting the overall mission of NTS, major giving makes it possible to carry out specific projects that drive NTS’ vision forward and extend its outreach beyond the campuses.

By choosing to give a major gift, you are contributing to the success of projects that will have an impact on the organization’s history and community.

Here are some examples: Taking over and continuing DramaFest, supporting student scholarships and awards, supporting artistic residencies, carrying out community activities, supporting the FilmLab, and more!


A gift of shares is a simple, beneficial way to give a major gift. Publicly traded securities are donated directly to the organization, which sells them to benefit its mission. You receive a full tax receipt for the value of the shares upon their transfer and are exempt from capital gains tax on the shares.

We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of your financial advisor today. NTS will work with you, your advisors and your brokers to find the most rewarding and practical way to fulfill your philanthropic ambitions.
