Support the Gate, Supporting Artists

Since the Gate opened almost a century ago, our ethos has never changed — to offer a different perspective on theatre, bound only by the limits of our imagination. Our theatre has always been a vibrant hub in our capital’s historic and contemporary creative culture.

The Gate Theatre has always relied heavily on the loyalty of our audience to sustain the work that we do, producing original, crafted theatre. We are in an exceptional and challenging position that we must look to our audience to keep us operational each year.

If you wish to consider supporting the Gate Theatre to work on inclusive projects and to support creative artists, we would deeply appreciate your donation.


Your Gift to the Gate

Donations to the Gate have been an integral part of the success of our much-loved theatre since its foundation in 1928. Their extraordinary generosity, in all different ways has helped us create extraordinary theatre.

There are many ways you may wish to make a difference by supporting the Gate. You may have a passion for supporting emerging talent, you may love the fact that the Gate commissions new exciting writers, you may want to conserve the uniqueness of our Georgian building; whatever it is that makes theatre unique for you at the Gate, it is worthy of support.

The GATE CIRCLE provides an opportunity for you, your friends, colleagues and clients to be moved and energised by Irish and international artists that are empowered to do their best work on the Gate stage.

We are inviting you to support us by becoming guardians of the Gate’s rich legacy, to be groundbreakers with us as we open the Gate to our local community, and to be gamechangers as we catapult the Gate into the 21st century.

Your support will help solidify that Gate’s status as a pivotal cultural force on the national and international stage.

Join us as we continue to play a defining role in Irish society.
