The Boxill/Doherty Memorial Fund was established in 1977 to finance projects which would benefit members of the company. It is administered by a committee which is popularly elected and generally referred to as the Boxill/Doherty Committee. The fund was established primarily through the efforts of the late Patrick Boxill, who was for many years a distinguished member of the Festival’s Acting Ensemble.
Since the fund was established, the Committee’s mandate has been developed to fit the needs of company members – assisting individuals who may find themselves in extraordinary or emergency situations. For example, in recent years, support has included help to cover emergency travel for family funerals/emergencies and emergency dental or medical expenses that were not covered by insurance plans, etc. The Committee also supports projects and requests that benefit company members as a whole.
