DONATE TO KEEP THE TBF RUNNING
Since we do not get any funding from any external source, our donors make up the biggest and most influential part of the Theatre Benevolent Fund. Without these donations we would not be able to survive at all. Thus, we would like to give a big thank you to all our donors, listed above, and to urge supporters of the TBF to also support them in their endeavours.
Should you want to support the TBF, kindly email us. You can also make a direct transaction into our account:
