Bard Legacy Circle

The Bard Legacy Circle is a unique, personal way for Bard patrons to support the future of Bard on the Beach Theatre Society and the Shakespeare Festival they have come to love year after year. These incredibly generous individuals have demonstrated tremendous foresight and philanthropy through planned gifts or bequests in their will. 

Legacy Circle members are thanked and recognized each year in a listing in our House Program and at a special reception with Artistic Director Christopher Gaze. 

Legacy Gifts can take many different forms. Below are just some examples of how you can make a lasting, positive impact on the many youth education programs and high quality performances Bard offers each year, but we encourage you to speak with your financial advisor about how you can best contribute in the years to come. 

If you have named Bard on the Beach in your will, or if you would like more information about how you can support Bard's future, please contact Amy Benson, Senior Development Manager at 604-737-0625 ext. 227 or
