As a non-profit organization, we at SaskExpress appreciate any and all help. Your donation or sponsorship not only helps us perform and grow as a company, but also helps support the dreams of our young Saskatchewan artists. The physical and mental health benefits of the performing arts are tremendous and we are passionate about providing acess to these benefits while also offering opportunities to talented singers, dancers, and actors from our province who might choose to make a career in the performing arts. Start by choosing one of our programs or initiatives:
The Express Club membership program started as one of our new Artistic Director, Danny Balkwill’s, many initiatives to create a broad-spectrum culture of inclusion and fellowship. Hence, we have redesigned the former Patrons and Members Program (a donation fund) to be the Express Club. The new Express Club has various levels of donation beginning with the basic $20/year membership fee up to $5,000 and more. We are proud of the environment that we have created for our casts and students at SaskExpress. Our aspiring artists often talk of the acceptance, fun and family feeling they experience while they are here, and they’ve told us it’s where they feel like they belong. We imagined how exciting it would be to include our supporters in this environment. We hope you feel it’s Where You Belong!

Help fund our Capital Campaign to create a green room and dressing rooms for our theatre. In 2007, we began renovations on the gymnasium in our space at 2272 Pasqua Street in Regina. We now have a beautiful, fully-function theatre! However, we do not have dressing rooms or a greenroom space for the performers and performing companies who book our space. Carol Gay Bell, our founder and former Artistic Director, has been working diligently on the gym conversion and has now turned her eye to the final renovations to our garage, which will provide the space we need to complete these rooms. The current Capital Campaign was launched in 2019 to raise funds for the conversion and will applied directly to the project. All donors to the program will have their names engraved on a plaque that will hang out outside the theatre once the renovations are completed.
Support the maintenance of our building through our Carol Gay Bell Legacy Fund. SaskExpress exsists because of the vision and perseverance of Carol Gay Bell. She coordinated the celebrations for the province's 75th Anniversary in 1980 and put together a show of singers, dancers and artists known as the Bggest Little Travelling Birthday Party. This unique show toured to places larger and small across our province throughout the year. The program proved to be so popular that in 1982 Saskatchewan Lotteries came on board as our major supporter. SaskExpress has evolved greatly since our early days and Carolhas moved on to enjoy a well-earned retirement. We want to honour her many achievements here and to do so developed the Carol Gay Bell Legacy Fund. As the Theatre is her labour of love, all funds raised through the Carol Gay Bell Legacy Fund will go toward the enhancement and upkeep of the theatre proper.
