40 years of artistic excellence, access, engagement, and education

SF Shakespeare Festival 40th Anniversary logo

As we continue to navigate these uncertain times, we at SF Shakes need your financial support to keep doing what we do best: overcoming obstacles to make great Shakespeare accessible to everyone.

Donations keep Free Shakespeare free in local public parks. Your support pays Teaching Artists equitable wages to work with students in Shakespeare Camps, creates teacher resources for Takes On Shakes, and provides engaging instruction for people on the autism spectrum in Shakespeare’s Heartbeat.

Every gift makes a difference. Even in the darkest of times, your donations literally keep the lights on so that our artists, teachers, students, and audiences can bring us the hopeful words and themes of Shakespeare (both live and in-person or virtually on Zoom!).


If you share our belief in the transformative power of the performing arts, then please, give what you can.

Your Donation

Annual Free Shakespeare fans and Shakespeare Camp families often donate $100, $250 or $500.

Many first-time donors make an introductory gift of $40.

Whether its $4,000 (in honor of our 40th anniversary) or $10, what's most important is to give and share the love of Shakespeare's timeless words and themes.
