Subsidy Request Information
The Bard Volunteers, who support our Shakespeare Festival each summer, have established a Bursary Fund to eliminate financial barriers to schools’ and individuals’ participation in our education programs.
During the performance season, patrons make contributions to the fund in lieu of leaving tips at the bar and concession stands, and the Festival has added other initiatives to increase patrons’ opportunities to contribute to the fund. These funds do not benefit Bard’s bottom line; rather, they are dedicated to covering the costs of our education program to those who need support.
