Support Us

Whether you are an individual wishing to make a donation or a company seeking sponsorship opportunities, your support is invaluable to our continuing efforts to present the best theatre and dance for children and young people in Scotland.

Our fundraising opportunities are for anyone who believes that Scotland’s culture and the arts can make a positive difference to children’s development as they grow up.

A partnership between your company and Imaginate can create wonderful opportunities for your organisation and clients as well as rewarding and entertaining your colleagues and their families. We are open and flexible and look forward to sharing ideas with you and your organisation to develop a mutually beneficial relationship.

As a donor, you can help us to continually improve the services we provide to artists and children throughout the year.

For more information on how you can become a supporter of Imaginate, please contact Paul Fitzpatrick, Chief Executive.
