Corporate Sponsorship

There are many ways in which your corporate support can help The Foster Festival – and in turn we can help your organization take the spotlight and enjoy an exciting evening of live theatre!

We've Got The Right Fit for You!

As a not-for-profit theatre organization, corporate donations cover a significant portion of our annual operating and production costs. It is through this corporate support that we are able to execute and maintain the vision of The Foster Festival to bring more laughter to our Niagara community.

If the arts interest you... if you like to laugh... and if you'd like to contribute to the health of our community, there are many ways in which your support can help.

We'll take the time to find the right fit for your organization in order to maximize the exposure and benefits of sponsorship for both your organization and our festival.

Let's talk... and we'll find the right fit for you!

Thank you to our 2019 Corporate Sponsors!

Sponsorship Packages

The Foster Festival wants to provide meaningful rewards for your sponsorship. We have developed multiple levels of support that will allow you to customize your commitment to us while offering you brand recognition, hospitality, and the opportunity for you to enrich the cultural lives of your employees and clients. 

All levels of Corporate Sponsorship will be recognized with some level of inclusion in our promotional material and Season brochures and advertising.


The first few seasons are crucial to the life and success of any organization.  As a Founding Sponsor, you’re helping us establish our presence in the Niagara Region and in the national arena. You are supporting both our Season and our Drama Club Outreach. Your name and logo will appear under this designation on all promotional and seasonal material.  You will be acknowledged in all pre-show curtain speeches.


Be a sponsor of all three Foster Festival productions at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.  Your name and logo will appear under this designation on all promotional and seasonal material. You will be acknowledged in all pre-curtain speeches.


Be a sponsor of your chosen production in our three-production season. Your name and logo will appear under this designation on all promotional material for the show you choose to sponsor as well as in the show program. You will be acknowledged in the pre-curtain speeches for the show you have chosen to sponsor.


The Foster Festival believes that cultural engagement should be available to everyone in the community regardless of means. So we've created our Local Heroes Program. Take your turn in the spotlight! Become a Local Hero Sponsor and help less fortunate members of our community enjoy an exciting afternoon or evening of theatre here in Niagara!


In-Kind Donations

We also recognize that your support might be manifested in In-Kind Donations – and would love to chat to see if this is the best fit for you.

  • Bell Media Radio Niagara (105.7 EZ Rock/610 CKTB) is very pleased with how the inaugural season of the Foster Festival turned out. It was great to be associated with such high level entertainment right here in downtown St.Catharines. We look forward to working and growing with them in the future.
    - Mark McNiven, Bell Media Radio Niagara
  • Burtnik Printing Inc. a proud supporter of many athletic, not-for-profit, and arts organizations was thrilled to support the Foster Festival in their inaugural year. Not only are they talented, creative and professional in their craft of theatre productions, they are superb at celebrating and promoting the businesses and individuals that support their efforts. This was evidenced by a patron of the festival who felt compelled to stop by our business to simply say “thank you” for our support of the Foster Festival. She had attended every performance and was overjoyed that such a festival of local talent was possible because of the generosity of the community. We look forward to working with the Foster Festival team in their second season and for years to come.
