Donations

Help us do more of what you love! The MAC is truly your space. It’s you, the audience, who bring the energy, buzz and warmth to the MAC year-round. Our central mission is to make a positive difference to people’s lives. We mean all lives in Northern Ireland, not just some. So that means opening the MAC to the widest possible audience, keeping our ticket prices affordable and creating the most accessible arts centre in the city.

To do that, in addition to ticket income and funding, we need to raise over £500,000 every year. As a registered charity, we rely on the generosity of our visitors, supporters and loyal audiences to help us achieve that target.  By making a one-off donation, or a regular direct debit gift, you can really make a difference.

Here’s what your gift will be used for:

  • £2 covers the bus fare for one local school pupil to travel to the MAC as part of our Passport to the MAC scheme
  • £5 is the suggested donation for a day spent exploring the MAC. It helps us to keep three art galleries open year-round with free admission
  • £10 covers the cost of one community ticket so a young person can come and see a live theatre production
  • £50 could pay for a ticket for a local family to enjoy their first visit to the theatre this Christmas (see our Give the Gift of Theatre project)
  • £100 could help pay for an invaluable sensory workshop for a group of school children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (see our MACtile Tours project)
  • £500 goes towards a bursary to support one emerging artist, through our Hatch programme

Whatever you can give, we really do appreciate it. You can make a donation online, add it to the price of your tickets, or drop in one of the donation boxes at the MAC. Thank you for your support.
