Wonder Club is a new donor program whose members share Barking Gecko’s commitment to children accessing extraordinary theatre. Members pledge to make a $1,000 tax-deductible gift to Barking Gecko each year, for three years.
Each year, Wonder Club enables thousands of children to attend our school matinee performances through:
– subsidised tickets – keeping them at an affordable student price of $17; and
– fully subsidised ($0) tickets for students living in low-socio economic suburbs – enabling children who would never attend theatre to experience the joy and wonder of live performance.
To help launch Wonder Club, we are delighted to have dollar-for-dollar matched funding support from Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1. By joining Wonder Club and making your first donation of $1,000 between 1 October 2020 and 31 May 2021 it will be matched, doubling your contribution to $2,000.
Thank you to the inaugural members of Wonder Club!
