GiveBIG is Wednesday, May 8!


Seattle’s annual day of community giving, GiveBIG, is coming up on May 8, 2019. It has become an important day for most of the nonprofit organizations in the area. Last year, GreenStage received more than $6,000 in donations. This year, we’re hoping to raise $8,000 or more to help us get ready for our 2019 season, which will mark our 31st summer of FREE Shakespeare in the Park.

While there is never any admission charged to attend any GreenStage show, there are still a lot of expenses. Your contributions each spring help create the costumes, build the props, print the programs, buy the chocolate Shakespeare coins, and do the zillion other things it takes to put on more than 60 performances of the Bard’s fantastic plays each summer.

Schedule your contributions now!

The GiveBIG day of giving will last almost two weeks! You can schedule your donations ahead of time beginning April 23; it can be no coincidence that this is the date generally accepted as the Bard’s birthday! Early contributions are perfect so you don’t forget or if you’re going to be out of town during the 24 hours of contributions on May 8. Naturally, we will still remind you—repeatedly!


We thank you for supporting GreenStage and your other favorite nonprofit organizations on this important day.
