Please join us in our Hopes to Raise $100,000.
“No Festival equals, no income", laments Noel Cislowski AM, Sydney Eisteddfod Chairman.
We face another nine months of no income and aim to raise $100,000 in order to cover our mounting costs until February when entries for 2021 will begin.
Costs include those for Stage At Home, which launched this month to engage with, promote and encourage our community to practice and perform their artform during this time at home.
Over 150 entries have been received so far for Stage At Home and we are delighted with the positive response this has received.
As we are hosting this virtual showcase completely free of charge, increased funding would enable us to expand this further in order to have a larger impact and influence on performers.
One of the essentials however, for our funding goal, is a mandatory upgrade required for our website.
This essential upgrade will rebuild the current website and had been scheduled but is now on hold. It is imperative as the current website build will expire, as will all technical support relating to the platform.
Sydney Eisteddfod needs to be able to take entries, sell tickets, receive donations, sell advertising and merchandise and importantly, engage with their community, ALL of which is done through the website.
We have weathered all the ups and downs that an 86-year history can offer but we now find ourselves in our most challenging situation yet.
Sydney Eisteddfod has given rise to many brilliant careers over the decades. The success stories of our Alumni are far and wide, not only in the field of entertainment, but in every walk of life.
Our mission has always been to reach and help as many as we can within the arts industry. From the performers, their families, the audiences, volunteers, teachers, venues and arts partners.
For those who are able to, we humbly ask if you could please help us in reaching our goal of $100,000 by donating what you can.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Please help us to continue to do this important work and allow Sydney Eisteddfod to come back bigger and better in 2021.
The entire team at Sydney Eisteddfod is so very thankful for your support.
