2b gratefully acknowledges valuable support from our individual donors. 100% of donations to 2b support the creation of original theatre projects.
Did you know we are a not-for-profit charity?
As an independent theatre company, donors are central to our success. Your donation helps make powerful and essential theatre. Theatre that comes from our communities and tells stories from here and around the world.
With your support, we will continue to innovate with ambition and create with care. Your donation provides time, space, and resources for our artists, administrators, and collaborators. Whether your donation allows us to buy a stapler, draft a script, or take a production to Tasmania, it matters.
2b theatre productions are created in community, with a diversity of voices and ideas in the room. In turn, when we create theatre, we create community. We’re excited about cultivating relationships with our donors, and we want you to see the impact of your donation: on our artists, our audiences, and our communities.
2b theatre company issues tax receipts for donations of twenty dollars or more. Consider donating shares and paying less tax (here’s how it works).

ways to support our work
We want to provide you with donation opportunities that are aligned with your interests and values. There are a variety of different ways to support our work.
You can support one of our three core funding streams:
curiosity – The curiosity fund helps make vital, innovative, and challenging new theatre. At 2b, we pursue artistic excellence through exploration and experimentation over time. Donations to the curiosity fund let us innovate and ask questions that inform our practice, and provide us with ample time and space to create. Curiosity is at the heart of our work: it allows us to tell stories that resonate with diverse audiences and communities.
connection – The connection fund makes our work more expansive and accessible for artists and audiences, at home and around the world. This fund allows us to connect with world-class theatre makers, tour our work around the world, and host stimulating workshops that bring creative thinkers together. Our connections allow us to uplift and inspire local artists and audiences, facilitate audience outreach, and contribute to the evolution of contemporary theatre worldwide.
care – The care fund increases our ability to provide care. It allows us to support artists’ and staff members’ financial, professional, and emotional wellbeing, and provide resources and training that help them bring their full selves to the work. Donations to the care fund also support access needs for audience members. Our care—and your donation to the care fund—contributes to the sustainability and strength of our local arts sector.
Additionally, we can work together to find a fit for your interests and values—whether it’s project-specific or more general. Maybe there’s a play about a specific subject that you’re interested in sponsoring, or you’d like to contribute to the costs associated with our creation and rehearsal spaces. We’re happy to discuss with you and personalize your support options.
