Thank you so much for considering a donation to help WOW-EFFECT accomplish its missions. Magic of art and community work start with you!
On this web page you can donate an amount of your own choosing to WOW-EFFECT Theater.
It can be to one of our ongoing projects or to WOW-EFFECT Theater in general. You can choose where your money goes by selecting a project from the form.
Our current projects are:
A donation to WOW-EFFECT Theater means that you will contribute to the culture of English-languaged amateur theater in Nijmegen and surrounding areas.
WOW-EFFECT Theater is a non-profit multicultural amateur theater company located in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. We write, produce and perform our own theater plays in the English language with members from all walks of life and different cultural backgrounds.
For this, we need a steady stream of income. As of now, all costs for our productions are carried by our members, gracious donations and subsidies by the city of Nijmegen. This keeps WOW-EFFECT Theater active and able to continue existing, but allows only for minimal growth.
To be able to offer our members and the outside world more, we depend on donations and like-minded individuals to enable us financially. If you’d like to be one of our benefactors, feel free to donate whatever amount you see fit. If you also leave us your name and email address, we will be sure to reach out to you in thanks and make sure that you will get the best seats and tickets to our performances.
In 2018-2019 season, WOW-EFFECT aims to provide the community a great boost in acting skills. In the past years we had been generously directed by volunteers, but now time has come to bring our capabilities to the next level! For the first time in our journey, we will be sparing some of our resources to hire a director.
Professional assistance is not new to us. In 2015, we have made to the finals of ‘The Play of Nijmegen‘, an amateur theater festival organized by De Verspiegeling, and we were coached by Marianne Hermans along the way. In 2017, Lindenberg Huis voor de Kunsten made something magical happen by adopting us as their in-house theater group and giving us the opportunity to work together with their marketers, directors and technicians.
Having seen how much this kind of assistance can add to our community, we are hungry to learn more from the experienced ones. We are however, not able to raise all funds by our regular resources (membership contributions, city funding and ticket sales) to hire a professional director for the whole season. We are struggling to find ways in which we can still receive some assistance.
If you would like to help us resolve our struggles and receive the creative boost we all dream about, feel welcome to donate an amount of your own choosing to this project. If you leave us your name and email address, we will be sure to keep you up to date with our news and deliver our thanks in any ways possible.
