[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We’re grateful to everyone who donates to support SVS, whether through our Holiday Campaign, during ticket purchase, or at any other time year-round!

Donations support SVS’s Annual Fund, which is critical to producing our free productions, keeping ticketed productions very affordable, and all productions free for youth 17 and under.

Nearly 40% of SVS’s resources comes from people like YOU, and your 100% tax-deductible donations.

Whenever you donate, you are automatically Part of our Donors Circle, which is our way to show appreciation to you, our biggest supporters. All donations starting Nov. 1, 2019, count toward your 2020 Donors Circle level.

Thank you for your support!

Donate online (Visa, Mastercard, or Discover):

Annual Fund ($100+)
Annual Fund (under $100)
Intern Fund

Or mail a check to:
Silicon Valley Shakespeare
775 E. Brokaw Road
San Jose, CA, 95112
(Please indicate which Fund to support.)

SVS has two Funds you can support: Annual Fund, Interns Fund.

All donations support the Annual Fund, unless you specify Interns Fund on your check.

Annual Fund

Supports SVS’s everyday operations, letting us provide access to innovative, high-quality classics for the broadest possible audiences, many of whom typically can’t afford theatre. Your support helps provide:

  • All performances, all year, free for kids 17 and under.
  • All Shakespeare in the Park performances in San Jose free for everyone.
  • All Summer Repertory performances at Sanborn Park at very affordable prices.

Interns Fund

Supports our fast-growing programs for acting interns and technical and design interns.

Our interns come from local high schools and colleges. Many progress to paid positions at SVS and other local theatres. Their internship experiences springboard them into further theatre education in college and beyond.

The Interns Fund honors Dinna Myers, an SVS founder, and Executive Director for the company’s first sixteen years.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
