Royal MTC was here yesterday, is here today and will be here for many more generations to enjoy because of the Royal MTC Endowment Fund in Honour of Artistic Director Steven Schipper. The endowment fund was established in 2001 to ensure financial viability and artistic integrity, one donation at a time. Your gifts to the Royal MTC Endowment Fund in Honour of Artistic Director Steven Schipper inspire us to think big, to develop young artists and to share our passion with the whole community. You can make a donation today to invest in the bright future of Royal MTC


An endowment fund is a long term investment where the capital is held in perpetuity and the investment income is withdrawn annually. In 2014, the endowment fund of Royal MTC was valued at over $18 million and provided $602,066 to help produce professional theatre for all Manitobans to enjoy.


The fund is managed by The Winnipeg Foundation, a community foundation that has been working with individuals, businesses and charities to improve the city of Winnipeg since 1921. The Winnipeg Foundation accepts your donations online for the Royal MTC Endowment Fund in Honour of Artistic Director Steven Schipper.


You have created a wonderful success story about the power of a community that cares deeply about live theatre. Royal MTC continues to accept gifts to the endowment to strengthen the existing fund and ensure the future of this theatre. Your donation makes a greater impact today because every dollar contributed before November 30, 2018 will be matched through the Canada Cultural Investment Fund.
Thanks to your support of the endowment fund, Royal MTC will continue to share stories that enlighten, examine, challenge and heal the human spirit.
