Working Harder To Support Colorado Shakespeare

Retiring Colorado Shakespeare Company director Dick Devin “works in a world of ironies. The number of corporate sponsors has risen to 34 from just a handful a few years ago, but they give less and it costs more for the festival staff to bring in each one. Individual giving, however, is up. ‘We’ve increased the number of people who give almost threefold in the last few years. We value the 1,000 people more (who are giving) because that’s building for the future. Two years from now it’s really gonna pay off’.”
