Sponsors and Supporters
Numerous projects of the Putbus Theatre Friends' Association can only be put to life through generous contributions of our sponsors and supporters. Even though our volunteers do not receive any monetary compensation, there are still other expenditures to consider, such as material costs and artists remuneration.
First of all, we should mention Sparkasse Vorpommern as the main sponsor of PUTBUS-FESTSPIELE (Putbus Festival) and Rügener Kabarett-Regatta (Cabaret-Regatta of Rügen). These events would not be feasible without its continuous generous support.
We receive subsidies from public funds of the Vorpommern-Rügen District, allocated for the promotion of culture. Music in Park, one of the Putbus Festival events, has been repeatedly financed that way.
The Honorary Office and Citizen Engagement Foundation (Stiftung für Ehrenamt und bürgerschaftliches Engagement in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) regularly provides financial aid for various projects, such as recruiting new members, organizing events for children, or Music in Park. Professional development workshops, offered by the foundation, have been of great help as well.
A real boost to the membership was achieved through the campaign „Call for Members“, which was run together with the Federal Cultural Foundation (Kulturstiftung des Bundes). As a result, we managed to win a substantial bonus.
Numerous opportunities for professional development through webinars were offered by the social enterprise „Haus des Stiftens“. The IT-Portal „Stifter Helfen“ has provided affordable or free soft- and hardware.
