Gala

We invite our patrons to make a small donation after each performance, and your company can provide a “match” to help leverage those donations and make each dollar go farther. Your company will receive recognition at the performance as an Audience Ask sponsor. You can choose to support just a few performances or a whole production, depending on your marketing needs. To become an Audience Ask sponsor, or to request more information, please contact Chapin Cole, Associate Director of Development, at ccole@calshakes.org or 510.548.3422 x107

Challenge Gifts


Challenge Gifts provide an important incentive for donors to increase their giving to general operating support or to support a specific program. They are particularly helpful to our Patron Services Associates during their nightly calling sessions to patrons. We can work with you to develop a recognition package that fits your needs, and ensure that your gift is used according to your particular philanthropic and marketing goals. To make a challenge gift to California Shakespeare Theater, or to request more information, please contact Chapin Cole, Associate Director of Development, at ccole@calshakes.org or 510.548.3422 x122.
