If you’ve caught a performance at the Bruns this summer, chances are you’ve gotten to know the Sharon Simpson Center pretty well. You’ve sipped a cup of Peet’s coffee at the café, you’ve taken advantage of our plentiful and eco-friendly restrooms, or you’ve relaxed with some pre-show wine on the plaza. Patrons and artists alike have found their favorite spots in our renovated home, and our new building has quickly become an integral part of the Bruns experience.
But our work isn’t finished yet. We still have $400,000 left to raise to achieve our fundraising goal of $8.5 million. To inspire others to give, some close friends of Cal Shakes are matching new gifts up to $100,000—starting now, any new gift to Building for the Future will have double the impact.
If you’ve been waiting to make a gift to the capital project, the moment is now. Your gift can be a pledge paid out over 3 years, and we can set up an payment plan to meet your needs. It’s never been a better time to help us build for the future.
Help us cross the finish line today!
It’s easy to make a gift:
1) Donate online at calshakes.org/future
2) Next time you’re at the Bruns, pick up a brochure from the Building for the Future sign in the plaza. A pledge envelope is included.
3) Call us at 510.809.3295.
Remember: all gifts of $1,000 or more will receive permanent recognition at the Bruns.
