We are hugely grateful to the trusts and foundations that support Dante or Die’s work
We’re incredibly grateful to anyone who can support our work, you can donate any amount via our GiveAsYouLive account

With the launch and tour of Kiss Marry Kill, 2024 will be the most ambitious year in Dante or Die’s history. And we have so many more projects on the boil for the coming years too. We need your support to stay innovative and keep taking risks.

Dante or Die is an independent theatre company and registered charity. We have to raise or earn every single pound - we don’t get a dime of regular funding from the Arts Council. If you love contemporary theatre that challenges, provokes, immerses and entertains, becoming a Friend of Dante or Die is your chance to make a difference.

The support of theatre-loving individuals ensures we can keep paying our wonderful artists, facilitators and team to create and present DoD’s distinctive productions and projects. Donations and grants help us to continue making a difference to communities - providing unique, creative opportunities for ex-gamblers, prisoners, people in care homes and other marginalised groups across the UK.

With your backing, 2024 will be more ambitious than ever for us all. With your support, our impact can be even greater. You can become a Dante or Die Friend or make a one-off donation really easily. Thank you.
