Wow! All of us here at Seattle Shakespeare Company were simply blown away by the outpouring of support from our generous fans and friends during GiveBIG yesterday. It was such a joy to watch the donations come in throughout the day, knowing that we can’t wait to put these gifts into action!
Thanks to 195 generous donors, we raised $42,268 to support Seattle Shakespeare Company’s work in the community! Again, wow. This is a new record for us! These funds will be stretched even further by The Seattle Foundation and by a generous challenge grant of $3,000 from one of our fans.
These donations will fuel free, professional performances of Shakespeare’s works to parks in 12 cities across the Puget Sound region this summer. This funding will support all of the work that SSC does onstage and off, touching the lives of 53,000 people across Washington State in the coming year—nearly half of these audience members will be young people.
A BIG thank you to all of the generous GiveBIG donors for being our partner in this work.
