Our Sources of Revenue
In order to meet our annual operating budget our organization relies on four sources of revenue:
|Ticket Sales and Rental Fees||58%|
|City of Lloydminster Annual Subsidy||22%|
|Various Grant Revenue||7%|
|Donations and Sponsorships||13%|
Our Fundraising Goal for 2014
With cuts to the Alberta Budget in 2013 to post secondary education, we lost our major rental client, Lakeland College. The result was a loss of $65,000 in revenue. Ouch! That really hurt. Fortunately, our request for additional funding in the amount of $32,500 from the City of Lloydminster was approved. However, our fundraising efforts in 2014 have now increased by the other $32,500 that still needs to be raised. Truthfully, that is a large task for us. Our total fundraising goal for 2014 is $87,500.

What People Say About Us
“This is the only place my husband brings me on dates" - Barb Hawken
"Theatre is nourishment for the soul as food and water is for the body." - Laurie Harris
"Love the great sound" - Cosette Green
"It is a great treat to see live productions in this day of Youtube and Brittany Spears!" - Anonymous
"Before the opening of Vic Juba Community Theatre, we attended way too many concerts in a school gymnasium or other local venue with bad sightlines and hard chairs -- usually sitting in front of a loud speaker. It was horrible. Let's continue to allow the performing arts to thrive in our community." - Bob Mottram
A Story We Love to Share
A mother brought in her sick six year-old son to Emergency at the Lloydminster Hospital. As is normal in a very busy department, the wait was fairly lengthy. Patience had run out for the young boy so he turned to his mother and said "can we go home now?" "Not until you have seen the Doctor" she replied. This answer was not good enough for the boy -- "but Mom", he insisted "we have to go now because our Christmas concert is tonight and we are going to be on the stage at the Big Juba." We love this story!
