support the inaugural confringency fund

We’re back! Our artists are hard at work (and play!) preparing shows they’ve been eager to share in person for over two years, we’re busy getting Fringe back onto stages and into the communities where it belongs, and we need your help!

At Fringe, we know that we should always expect the unexpected, and today we’re introducing an innovative new way to protect our artists and their work. The ConFRINGEncy Fund provides financial resources for artists when they’re met with unforeseen challenges.

PLUS, a very generous board member has pledged to match all donations up to $5,000 - so double your donation and help us reach our goal! Your support will give artists peace of mind and allow them to dream big and take the creative risks to create the urgent, exciting work that you’ve come to expect from the Fringe.

The Toronto Fringe did not stop because of the pandemic. We found ways to continue to be a performance platform and found ourselves digging deeper into our values and plans. We used saved funds, and now with your help we would like to protect our future.

Any donation will help. If you would like to know more about Stewardship at The Toronto Fringe, check out our helpful guide HERE.

We are so excited to welcome you back to our theatres and to check out the 90+ companies who make up the 2022 Festival. Plus, we have lots of community events at our POSTSCRIPT Patio and Lounge so we hope you can join us this summer
It’s been a long time coming.

Happy Fringing!
