Make your gift count twice! Matching Gift Challenge
Through the generosity of an anonymous donor you can make your gift count twice. As we continue to work and dream of that day when we will all be together in one shared space as before, you can make a real difference right now by supporting The Shaw. All donations will be matched up to $50,000 until December 31, 2020.
You can help The Shaw emerge stronger than ever by giving to:
The Artist & Artisan Support Fund, which will provide short-term support to help cover artists' housing costs and temporarily employ actors and musicians to engage with our Friends through outreach activities until we can return to the stage; or
The Shaw Resiliency Fund, to help us through the longer term impacts and costs associated with recovering from COVID-19. This is a restricted fund managed by our Endowment Board for essential financial relief in the area of greatest need.
Read more about these funds and how you can help.
The Shaw Festival accepts both American and Canadian gifts.
