New campaigns broaden arts bodies’ donor base

The state’s premier theatre company has delivered a performance of high quality in the midst of the economic downturn, growing its capacity in philanthropy and increasing donations and sponsorships over five years. 

The return is a fitting payoff for management at Black Swan State Theatre Company, who have introduced several new campaigns during that time specifically focused on broadening its donor base and contribution levels.

The company’s latest initiative, the ‘production fund’, was launched last month at its inaugural Philanthropy Gala Dinner, which had high-profile Perth donors including Andrew and Nicola Forrest, as well as Mimi and Willy Packer in attendance.
