Call for Applications: Looking for a Lawyer Play Charity Partner for 2020

September 26, 2019  

CCLA/ GCTC Annual Lawyer Play Fundraiser – 21st Anniversary!

Call for Applications: Looking for a charity partner for 2020

Each year, the annual Lawyer Play fundraiser raises much-needed funding for the Great Canadian Theatre Company, a registered charitable organization, as well as for a designated charity partner which changes from year to year. In 2020, the Lawyer Play performances will be from May 27-30.

The designated charity partner receives at least $10,000.00. The amount of the ultimate payment is calculated after the play is done, once the final net proceeds of the production are known. The more sponsorships we secure and the more tickets we sell, the more money the charity partner will receive!

If your organization is chosen as the charity partner, we ask that you commit to having a representative attend each performance, to participate in the pre-show speeches and in the cheque presentation at the final performance.

If you are involved with, or know of, a registered charity that you would like us to consider, the Committee would be very pleased to hear from you.

To apply to be the charity partner, please send us your application before 4 pm on October 21, 2019. Please limit your application to 800 words, and include the following information:

• The name of the organization and its charitable registration number;
• Name and title of contact person;
• The organization’s objectives, mandate and/or mission statement;
• How the organization would use the funds raised. Please specify whether the funds would be used towards programming and/or capital needs; and
• Why the organization would be a good choice.

Please send your application to OttawaLP.charity@gmail.com. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at this email address.

Thank you,
