Does your company offer “matching gifts”?
Matching gifts are a type of corporate giving program that essentially doubles an employee’s initial donation to an eligible nonprofit organization. It is a philanthropy program initiative that rewards employees’ charitable donations. Check out benevity.com to see how doubling your donation through your company makes a huge impact!
Ask your Human Resources department if your company has such a program, if you have additional questions on how you can donate a matching gift to SCS please contact Alexandra Carr, Membership Coordinator at email@example.com. This type of donation will help to increase your member level by receiving and giving a matching gift to SCS!
Here are some corporations who’ve doubled their employee’s donations to Santa Cruz Shakespeare:

Help us house our artists! We need housing hosts!
The SCS Company Manager makes arrangements for accommodations for directors, designers, actors, and theatre technicians of all kinds hailing from New York, Los Angeles, and many points in between. Some Company members depart once the show they are involved with has opened; others remain for the full run. The time frame is roughly from mid-June to the beginning of September, depending on who is being housed.
Company Housing: We are seeking houses, apartments, and condos to sublet in areas accessible to the center of Santa Cruz. All of our company members will be working long hours, so of utmost importance is privacy and quiet. Housing comprises a significant expense to SCS, so donations of living quarters are also greatly appreciated.
Intern Housing: We also direct our interns who come from out of town to accommodations that might include sharing a household that already exists, a room in someone’s home, or a studio apartment. So, please do let us know if you have such a property to donate or for rent. If you have housing that you would like Santa Cruz Shakespeare to consider, it is never too early to contact us. Thank you for supporting live theatre in your community!
For more information becoming a housing host, please contact Sue Dormanen, Company Manager or call at 831-460-6396 x8.
