CircusWest, a registered charity, offers children, teens, and adults an opportunity to explore circus arts in an encouraging, non-competitive environment. To achieve this, we seek support from our community to administer a circus bursary program, help fund safe training spaces and secure our future as a social organization.
Support CircusWest in 2023!
INITIATIVE 1: SUPPORT THE RENEE WITHERS MEMORIAL BURSARY FUND
CircusWest is raising funds this season to support outreach and bursaries for CirKids camps and classes. Please consider donating to the Renee Withers Memorial Bursary Fund initiative to allow kids, who may otherwise not be able, to afford circus training and experience the magic of performance and to find their tribe. Circus was a passion for Renee Withers connecting her, with people who, like herself, saw and approached the world in a different way.
CircusWest & Renee’s family would like to honour her memory with an ongoing fund to provide circus training and performance opportunities for other youth. Click below donate to the CircusWest Renee Withers Memorial Bursary Fund.
INITIATIVE 2: SUPPORT SAFE TRAINING SPACES
Your funds will allow CircusWest to provide additional programming to all groups with additional training space.
CircusWest is also raising funds through donations, grants and financial support for the purchase of an authentic Circus Big Top. This traditional 45-meter squared circus tent could house multiple training spaces and also serve as a performance space allowing for maximum physical distancing and the dedicated infrastructure required for circus shows.
INITIATIVE 3: SUPPORT CIRCUSWEST’S LEGACY
The CirKids School of Circus Arts Society Fund, administered by the Vancouver Foundation, enables us to advance our mission for the long term.
