Campaign Recognition

The Our City, Our Shakespeare Campaign is fueling our new, first-of-its-kind
venue: The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare.
The vision for this new space is bold and the need for our service is even greater. Our artists are yearning to develop increasingly complex and innovative projects; the next generation of Chicagoans is waiting to discover the canon, and through it, a pathway to literacy; and our global connectivity paves the way for ground-breaking international partnerships.

Our future now lies in the hands of people like you: Chicago’s most generous individuals and civic leaders. We are humbled by your continued belief in what an investment in Chicago Shakespeare can do for the people of this great city and are pleased to recognize major gifts to the Campaign in the following ways:

Name a seat
