“Being a part of Cal Shakes has been a fantastic experience for our entire family. The stage is electric and their learning programs and camps have enthralled our kids. We added to the Board Endowment to expand long-term support for Cal Shakes and its important role in our community.”
—Kate Stechschulte, Cal Shakes Board Vice President, and David Cost
Whether you have been a longtime season subscriber or have attended our theater only occasionally, we hope the experience has inspired you. The power of theater to explore timeless concerns of the human condition is why dramatic works both old and new can illuminate our perceptions of art and humanity, and inspire us to grow as individuals and citizens.
If you believe in the transformative power of theater, please consider making a lasting gift to Cal Shakes through your will or estate plan.
There are several ways to include Cal Shakes in your estate plans, and we recommend that you discuss these options with a trusted attorney or estate planning professional.
While legacy gifts often provide estate tax savings, the most rewarding benefit may be the satisfaction of knowing that you are playing a leading role in advancing our work on stage, in classrooms, and in community settings that serve diverse constituencies throughout the Bay area. If you have included Cal Shakes in your estate plans, we would welcome the opportunity to recognize you as a 2014 Charter Member of the Cal Shakes Legacy Circle.
For information on how to become a member of the Legacy Circle or for additional information about making a legacy gift or bequest to Cal Shakes, please contact Megan Barton at 510.899.4922or firstname.lastname@example.org.
