Your contributions to Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival help us keep ticket prices low, offer educational programming, and support our dedicated artists.


We welcome monetary donations, but there's another way you can give to FlagShakes: by housing an actor. If you have a spare guestroom, apartment, or guesthouse and would like to shelter one or more actors during the summer and/or fall rehearsal and performance seasons, please contact us at As a token of our gratitude, all hosts receive:

  • Two free tickets to any show in the current season
  • A receipt documenting your tax-deductible donation


FlagShakes is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and all gifts and donations are tax-deductible.


Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charities selected by customers. Just visit and confirm that you would like to support Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival. Don't forget to visit Amazon via each time you make a purchase!


Every gift counts. Whether you can give $1 or $100, your contribution matters. All contributions go directly into our next season of shows here at Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival. 


Double, or sometimes even triple, your gift to Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival by using your company's matching gift program.

Many companies and corporations have matching gift programs and will match their employees' gifts to the Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival.


Giving to the arts benefits our culture and gives our lives fulfillment. Join with other businesses in enriching our culture and lifestyle with plays that touch the soul and also make us laugh.


As thanks for your participation, we will place your logo prominently on all print materials produced for the show you sponsor (seen by hundreds of patrons), on our website (over a thousand visits monthly), and in all our social media advertising (thousands reached every week). Our actors will thank your business during the curtain speech, and you'll receive several free tickets for your employees or clients. Sponsorship opportunities are available starting at $250 per weekend. Let us know what you want from a partnership with Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival, and we'll discuss options with you.


FlagShakes welcomes in-kind donations, including some costume items, period furniture, and electrical or home appliances for our Artists Residence. In addition, we often accept donations of services from area businesses. Please let us know if you'd like to make an in-kind donation of any type.

For more information about any of these giving opportunities or to designate your gift, email or call Dawn Tucker at 928.814.9396.
