We are grateful for donations of any size, they make a real difference. You can either donate to:

Alternatively, you can donate to our General Donations Fund which underpins all our work at the Playhouse.
You can make a donation to any of these funds when you buy a ticket for Oxford Playhouse or by calling Emily Lister in the Development team on 01865 305 315.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a government scheme where, if you are a UK taxpayer, you can increase the value of your donation to us by 25% at no extra cost to you. This means that if you make a £2 donation, it's worth £2.50 to us! If you would like to make a new Gift Aid declaration or change an existing one, you can call the Development team on 01865 305 315.
Also, if you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
How do I set up a regular donation?
You can call the Development team on 01865 305 315 to set up a regular payment by direct debit or to request a form to set up a standing order.
We have recently set up a new Friendship programme for people who want to regularly donate to our work at the Playhouse. Friendship starts from £500 a year and you can find more information here.
Don't I already donate to you by being a Member?
Members of the Playhouse (inc. OPTin, Enjoy, Full Circle, College and Business Club) are tremendously important and play an integral part in supporting us by regularly attending performances. However, no part of what you pay to join those memberships is a donation: it's a membership fee for which you receive certain benefits in return. If you would like to give any more to the Playhouse as a donation we would be very grateful.
If you would like to support us on a regular basis and keep your Membership benefits you might like to consider being a Friend of the Playhouse (starting from £500 a year). Click here for more information.
How can my support be anonymous?
If you would rather your support was anonymous and not publicly acknowledged simply email the Development team expressing your wishes and your support will not be made public.
