Corporate Sponsorship

As a non-profit, we rely on the generous support from the business community to make efficient and sustainable changes in the Canadian dance economy. Corporate donations will directly support diverse artists in the creation of new works at TDT, a central dance hub in Toronto. By partnering with TDT, we will strive to meet your philanthropic goals, as well as your marketing initiatives. TDT is pleased to enhance the visibility of our sponsoring partners, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss customizing packages which will align with your specific interests.

The following sponsorship benefits are offered by TDT:

  • Naming rights for programming and productions as the Presenting Sponsor;
  • Reserved and complimentary tickets during the run of the event;
  • Recognition on TDT’s website, donor e-blasts, in all print and digital material related to the 2021/2022 season, and acknowledgement in marketing materials to promote the programming;
  • Artistic Director, Andrew Tay, will acknowledge the business in his opening remarks during public engagement activities.

Legacy Giving

Leaving a bequest, gift, stock, or gift of securities to TDT will ensure the longevity of the company for years to come. Please contact your financial advisor or legal professional for more information on how to do so. In addition to benefitting the Toronto Dance Theatre, Legacy gifts provide significant financial benefits to the donor, including substantial tax deductions to donors or their loved ones. Please contact Jessica Whitford at jessica@tdt.org to discuss how you would like to make your impact.

Gift of Securities

Thank you for considering a gift of securities to TDT. Donating publicly listed securities is an easy process and great way to support dance while exempting capital gains taxes. Below are procedures which will assist you in making your donation.

In-Kind Sponsorship

While financial support is extremely important to TDT, we depend on the added support from our friends and business community to deliver unique events and fundraisers. By donating non-cash goods or services, your gift will directly support our community of artists and will be appreciated by all. TDT welcomes businesses to contact jessica@tdt.org for further information about branding opportunities and event sponsorships.
