Take Your Seat Campaign

Individual and Planned Giving: Your Gift. Your Choice. Your Theatre.

When you make a gift to OOH, you make a gift of  world-class performing arts to the entire region. OOH contributes tremendously  to an excellent quality of life in the City of Orillia by creating a culturally and  economically thriving community that attracts tourists, residents, and  businesses. 

Among the many convenient ways to give are:


Membership Gifts

Membership gifts are gifts to OOH and you! Each membership level offers  wonderful benefits. Membership gifts can be made online via our secure online  giving page, by credit card (VISA or MasterCard) online or by calling OOH at (705)325-2095 or by cheque made payable to Orillia Opera House and mailed to:Orillia Opera House  20 Mississaga Street West, Orillia ON L3V 3A


Seat Plaques

The Orillia Opera  House contributes to the community as a home for the performing arts, essential  to this region's cultural vitality.

In turn, OOH depends  on the extended community for its generous membership gifts, essential  donations of time and talent offered by our volunteers, permanent and seasonal  staff, and to be the bedrock of our audiences, whose enthusiasm for attending  performances fuels OOHs year-round activities dedicated to preserving the arts.

Seat Plaques make the perfect present for friends, family, and are a great way to thank clients,  reward employees, or delight co-workers. It is also a permanent way to honor someone.


You Can Also Help Sustain the OOH by:

Donating an Asset    

The simplest way to support OOH is through cash gifts. But creative gifts of assets  can include stocks, bonds, and property. These can provide you with charitable deductions.


By remembering OOH in your will, you may be able to secure a charitable estate-tax deduction for the value of the gift. Best of all, you will know that  your generosity will support OOH for years to come and leave a lasting legacy.  For including OOH in your future plans, you will be recognized as a member of OOH's  legacy society, The Encore Society.

Via Matching Gifts from Your Employer   

Many employers match employee contributions to educational institutions like OOH,  so don't miss out on this easy opportunity to double the impact of your gift.  Information should be available to you through your HR office.


If you prefer to make a gift of your time and talents instead, we encourage you  to explore the many options available, among them service as an usher or tour guide.
