Bequests have the power to transform arts organisations and are a remarkable way to share your passion for theatre with the community for generations to come.

At Red Stitch we nurture and empower artists and captivate audiences. To enable us to do this we rely on ticket sales, fundraising, philanthropy, and limited government support; but predominantly, we rely on our artists subsidising the work through reductions to their income.

By making a bequest to Red Stitch in your will you will have a lasting and dramatic impact upon the company and the performing arts in Melbourne and around the country. With your support, we will be able to ensure that future generations of artists and audiences alike can experience the dynamism that is created in the Red Stitch Theatre.

A bequest is a deeply personal way of showing your support. We would love to discuss your intentions in confidence, and provide you with guidance about where to begin.

For more information about Bequests, please contact our General Manager, Fiona Symonds, on or (03) 9533 8082.

We would like to make a special mention of Edwina Mary Lampitt and her family, for the generosity they have shown towards Red Stitch in memory of Edwina and her remarkable life.
