About Us

Support Us

Marvellous things are on the way! YOU can be a part of writing our next chapter by making a financial donation to Cahoots. We have a special relationship with our communities and are grateful for the gifts so generously given to us - whether "large" or "small". We put those words in quotes because we know that they mean nothing outside of the context of each individual circumstance. That is why we are genuinely moved by each offering that we receive. Every dime donated makes our supporters co-authors in the book of Cahoots, and we thank you.

Help Build Our Future

After over two years in a pandemic, we are eager to bring you live performance once again! We look forward to the marvellous productions, concerts, conversations and other events that we cannot wait to share with the public, and we invite you to be a part of our return. Our donors are the wind at our back as we continue to grow and become more of what our many communities deserve.  Donations help us to give more to our artists and audiences.  Together we are the future of Cahoots.

Individual Giving

We are so incredibly grateful for our individual donors! They are comprised of folks from every group that Cahoots serves and represents, and beyond! We are so proud of the wide range of supporters who kindly give us a boost. Give a one-time gift, or contribute monthly. Switch at any time. It's up to you!
