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.

  • Thorold Community Theatre was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to sponsor the opening night of the world premier of Halfway There during the Foster Festival's inaugural season at their new home at St Catharines new Performing Arts Centre. We are honoured and thrilled to have done so. The inclusion of our logo and signage, as well as a mention in the preshow announcements and a chance to schmooze with Norm himself, was everything we could have hoped for. And yet, one never knows where an adventure like this leads. At one of our own events, about a month later, two ladies were heard chatting. One said to the other, "I didn't even know Thorold had a community theatre until I heard them mentioned at the Foster Festival a few weeks ago". Thank you, Emily and Trish and everyone at the Foster Festival, for allowing us to be a part of your very successful and amazing first year.

  • The calibre of the production, the acting, the writing of Norm Foster, all at St. Catharines' new Performing Arts Centre….lots and lots of fun and really funny!  Loved the performances….Well worth the sponsorship…a good fit for my brand!
