Polyglot’s Circle


Polyglot’s Circle is an annual giving program for individuals and families.

Together, Polyglot’s Circle plays a crucial role in strengthening the company through both financial support and advocacy.

Polyglot’s Circle donors and their families enjoy a closer relationship with the company through behind-the-scenes access to our performances and events, regular updates on Polyglot’s adventures, acknowledgement in our publications and the satisfaction of knowing your support is making a real difference to the cultural life of children of all ages and backgrounds.

We invite you and your family to join Polyglot’s Circle by making annually, a tax deductible donation at the following levels:

Sharing $250 +
Encouraging $500 +
Empowering $1,000 +
Sustaining $5,000 +
Growing $10,000+
Inspiring $25,000+

It is only through the support of a range of individuals, philanthropic and government partners that Polyglot can continue to develop, present and tour new theatre works and collaborative projects in Victoria, around Australia and internationally.
