Support the work of Teater Ekamatra and make your dollar go four times further. With this unique fundraising challenge, every $1 donated will be “upsized” to $4 for the theatre company. Titled AMBOI!, a colloquial Malay word that expresses wonderment, this challenge is an invitation for supporters of theatre to champion diversity and the work of Teater Ekamatra in creating platforms for ethnic minority voices. It runs from 24 July to 31 August 2020 on https://www.giving.sg/teater-ekamatra-ltd-/amboi or click the button above/below !
The multiplier effect is made possible by a private donor who has generously committed to a dollar-for-dollar matching for all donations up to $10,000. The total amount will then be doubled through the Cultural Matching Fund (CMF).
As a community, we hope to reach our initial funding goal of $10,000, which will translate into $40,000 for the company. Reaching this milestone will “unlock” a free Zoom mini festival of performances by surprise artists and collaborators of Teater Ekamatra over the years, as a gesture of thanks to our donors.
The funds raised will help support Teater Ekamatra’s future programmes, including upcoming digital projects such as a reimagining of recently cancelled production Berak; children’s programme Mat Champion; its long-running Playwright Mentorship Programme; and Baca Skrip, a new Zoom play reading series. It will also cover overhead expenses such as rental and staff salaries.
By amplifying individual giving efforts in this way, Teater Ekamatra hopes to encourage both loyal and first-time donors to contribute to its ongoing work in safeguarding the future of the arts and ensuring that minority voices have a place within it, especially in this time of crisis and isolation.
