Why Donate?

Without ticket income, SBTS must rely on your donations and foundation grants to underwrite 100% of the festival. How much would make a difference?

SBTS Big Fish Family

It’s easy. If we received $100 from 3180 people we’d make our $318,000 goal. Better yet, $1,000 from 318 attendees and we’re in the black.

Please show your support this season by joining our BIG FISH FAMILY.
Shakespeare by the Sea is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (Tax ID number 95-4785457), and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law.
