Get involved and make a difference in our youth.
Shakespeare Schools Festival has been joining hands with both corporates and individuals to give young people the social skills and confidence they need to succeed in life.
We are extremely adept at stretching our annual budget to take us as a long way, however funding for non-profit organisations is becoming increasingly difficult to secure, not only due to our current financial climate in South African but also due to the number of worthy causes that currently exists, it simply becomes very difficult to help everyone.
2021 Required Annual Budget
While we continue to find and maintain relationships with long term funders – the reality is that we still need to raise additional funds to reach our annual budget. Our festival operates on just over one million rand per year and we encourage all to read through our past reports to see exactly how far this money takes us.
Here are some ways that you can support us:
Become a regular supporter by making a monthly contribution.
Make a once-off donation.
Offer your skills and time.
Become a festival volunteer.
Spread the word about our festival on your social media platforms.
A huge thank you to our Funders and Donors
