Ways to Support

As well as the diverse artistic programme and a stunning listed building, what makes Square Chapel really special is the incredible spirit and support that has carried it from being a derelict building in 1988 to the thriving arts and community venue it is today.

Our Corporate Sponsors provide essential support, helping Square Chapel create a better Halifax in which to live and work.

A thriving arts and cultural centre demonstrates a lively and positive community spirit, an important consideration for employees and investors looking to move into the town.

Now is the time to share the success, support the development of our town and benefit from the association with a flourishing arts and community venue.

Depending on the amount you give…

  • your company name and branding will be carried on everything from our season brochure to the brand new auditorium
  • we will work closely together to identify marketing opportunities and generate positive PR for you and your business
  • provide benefits to your employees
  • help you meet your Corporate Social Responsibility objectives

To find out more call 01422 353073 or email info@squarechapel.co.uk

Square Chapel’s programme of arts and activities relies heavily on regular funding to keep it going and growing. Donating on a monthly basis means that you get to choose a manageable amount which will help Square Chapel to keep the Cornerstone project moving and enable us to plan for the future more easily.

There will be lots of opportunities to see the progress of the project and visit the site. Your support will be acknowledged in the following ways (based on a monthly donation for a minimum of 2 years):

  • Donate £2 or more and your support will be acknowledged in a public space in the new building
  • Donate £25 or more and have one of the seats in our brand new auditorium dedicated to you or a loved one marked by an engraved plaque
  • Donate £50 or more and we will include your name on a paving stone in our outside public area

To find out more call 01422 353073 or email info@squarechapel.co.uk

To set up regular giving please go to Square Chapel’s Virgin Money Giving page and select ‘Make a monthly donation’.

If you are a UK taxpayer, any donation you make can be increased by 25% at no cost to you, providing you give your consent for us to claim Gift Aid.

The success of Square Chapel’s many different strands of work is often thanks to the generosity of local people making one-off donations. Donations both large and small made by theatre, music and arts lovers means Square Chapel continues to thrive.

Choose any amount to give as a one-off catalyst in the Cornerstone development. There will be lots of opportunities to see the progress of the project and visit the site, and your support will be acknowledged in the following ways:

  • Donate £50 or more and your support will be acknowledged in a public space in the new building
  • Donate £500 or more and have one of the seats in our brand new auditorium dedicated to you or a loved one marked by an engraved plaque
  • Donate £1,000 or more and we will engrave your name on a paving stone in our outside public area

If you are a UK taxpayer, any donation you make can be increased by 25% at no cost to you, providing you give your consent for us to claim Gift Aid.

If you are able to make a more substantial gift you could think about joining our select Patrons’ circle.

As a Patron you can become as involved as you wish; maintain the status through your donation alone, or become active in the development of Halifax’s Centre for the Arts, utilising your experience more directly with our CEO, Board and other working groups.

You’ll receive a range of exclusive benefits including your name on a seat, acknowledgment in our outside public area and the opportunity to become part of the dynamic group who shape the future of Square Chapel.
