We are a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England and receive a fixed amount of public subsidy each year to produce innovative and risk taking new theatre. This amounts to approximately 48% of our total income. We raise the remainder of our income through touring our productions, running workshops and participation opportunities and, importantly, from sponsorship and individual donations.

By donating to Told by an Idiot you are directly contributing to the creation of our work. You can make a huge difference. From funding props and costumes used in research and development weeks to funding placements on our workshops for early career theatre-makers whose voices; individuals whose voices are underrepresented in our industry. Our Taught by an Idiot participation work within communities across the country also cannot continue without financial support. 

Please click on 'donate' to contribute to our work. If you would like any further information about donating to the company we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Jenni Grainger (Executive Director) on 020 7407 4123.
