Welcome to Wollongong’s Home of the Performing Arts

Support Us

Merrigong is dedicated to delivering experiences that are relevant and impactful to the diverse people of our region. We invest in a range of programs with community groups, schools and artists that deliver tangible outcomes through paid residencies, employment and the development of new theatre work.

There are many ways that you can support this work, from tax-deductible donations, to corporate partnerships, to becoming part of our team of highly-valued volunteers. Your contribution can help us build a brighter future for artists, audiences and our community.

As a not-for-profit theatre company donations play a critical role in supporting our mission. Your contribution directly fuels our ongoing investment in artists, programs with community groups and the creation of new works for the stage. 

Today, your vital donation can open doors for the next generation, enabling us to share compelling stories that define Australia and authentically reflect our diverse community. Together, we can make a profound impact on our community through the power of storytelling. 

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Every amount, regardless of size, makes a meaningful difference.

Thank you for being an invaluable supporter of Merrigong Theatre Company. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to each and every person who purchases a ticket and shares in the magic of live performances. 

Our hope is to INSPIRE you to generously donate so we can continue to foster the growth and vitality of our artistic community and you can become an ARTS CHAMPION!

– Rachel Francis, General Manager
