LAF Support

LAF couldn't have got to where we are today with some generous support along the way.
We wish to thank our partners, funders, donors and seat sponsors.

Want to know how you can support us, or find out who our fantastic supporters are? Read on.

Support LAF

We are a registered charitable trust. Making a small donation would really help us to do that little bit more - be it producing high quality original theatre or developing our performing arts education program.

We are deeply grateful to our supporters who have helped us continue our battle to rebuild, develop and grow.

Seat Sponsors

Some of our AWESOME seat donors at a function in May 2016.

Back in 2015 we had a fundraising mountain to climb - raise $70,000 in six weeks to secure the retractable seating for the Lyttelton Arts Factory.

Working with the Arts Foundation we launched a Boosted campaign to raise the money, and along with the incredible donations from many many people and organisations we offered you the naming rights to a seat in our new theatre for $1,000.

Thanks in no small part to the following generous people who 'purchased' a seat we not only hit our target but exceeded it by $23,000!

You can see some of our AWESOME donors in this photo from a May 2016 function.

We've still got seats to name - if you'd like to support the Lyttelton Arts Factory in this way, with your donation helping to support our operational goals of theatrical performance, education & community.  Get in touch with Darryl to discuss how your donation will help.
