The new theatre and exhibition galleries at Burrinja have officially opened! While the centre is looking stunning, there are still opportunities to donate to the Burrinja Public Fund and have your name carved into a slice of history (and a plaque on a theatre seat!).
Funding from the Local, State and Federal Governments has allowed us to design a facility that will deliver excellent stage, performer, technical and audience facilities, full disability access, an Indigenous education cultural garden and many other improvements. Unfortunately many of the essential 'fit out' items needed to fully equip the theatre are not yet funded. This includes audio equipment, theatre lighting fixtures, digital projection equipment and a piano.
We are currently inviting donations to the Burrinja Public Fund. By gifting to Burrinja, you become a part of our unique history and community, and demonstrate your passion for arts and culture in the region. All donations to the Burrinja Public Fund are tax-deductible and will be issued with a tax receipt. The Burrinja Public Fund is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) under Subdivision 30-BA of the Income Tax Assessment Act of 1997; 12.1.1 public fund on the register of cultural organisations.
Your generous donation to Burrinja of $200 or more will be acknowledged with a theatre seat name plaque recognizing your support, giving you an important historical and on-going stake in the region's new theatre. You will also receive acknowledgment on our web site and in our Annual Report.
All donor support is highly valued by Burrinja, and will make a difference. We welcome the opportunity to discuss how you may donate to our Public Fund to ensure that your generous donation works best for you.
'Mater Christi College' is pleased to support the exciting new Burrinja Performing Arts venue with a Foundation Donation. We are committed to support the success of this venture. This venue will finally provide students from all schools in the region with the purpose-built facilities they need to develop performance, music, dance and movement. It will be a terrific addition to arts and culture in the Dandenong Ranges."
