Silicon Valley Shakespeare is grateful to the many local organizations that support us, by providing grants, special sponsorship, direct contributions, raffle items, or by matching employee donations.

Granting organizations

The City of San José Office of Cultural Affairs has generously provided SVS their fiscal and moral support of our overall operations, including Shakespeare in Willow Street Park, which is presented free of charge to thousands of people each summer. All that we do would not be possible without their support.In April, 2016, Lucky Shares became Shares powered by eScrip. If you used a Lucky Shares card to support SVS, thank you! We hope you’ll enroll in the new program.

The City of San José District 6 councilmember’s office has been instrumental in the creation and support of Free Shakespeare in San José, performed at Willow Street Park. SVS is grateful for the continued support for this annual production that we receive from Councilmember Devora “Dev” Davis.

SV Creates is a longtime supporter of SVS – our operations and through various specific programmatic endeavors. SVS is grateful to be part of the community that SV Creates fosters.

The Saratoga Rotary Charitable Foundation has supported SVS many times, through the generous funding of much-needed equipment that directly support the productions we bring to the public.
