Ways to Give

Commonwealth Shakespeare Company exists to provide FREE Shakespeare to Greater Boston, which means 80% of our revenue comes from donors like you, rather than from ticket sales! Please make a gift today to support accessible theater and education programs at the level of artistic excellence that inspires and unites our community. Together, you keep theater available to audiences and students in Greater Boston and beyond. 

Below are the many ways you can make a tax-deductible gift to Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Massachusetts. Don’t forget to let us know if your or your spouse’s employer offers to match your donation, and your gift will make twice the impact! All donors will receive a gift acknowledgment that can be used for tax and accounting purposes.
