Ways To Give

For over 50 years, CSC has been the place to experience the classics up close. Our work requires much more support than can be raised from ticket sales alone, and each season is made possible in part by the generous support from individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution today. Your gift enables our mission, from creating thought-provoking theater to introducing the power of Shakespeare to thousands of students in New York City every year.

CSC gratefully accepts planned gifts, donations of stock, in-kind contributions, and underwriting of our events, productions, and programming. Please call the number above for details.

Give what you can, every dollar counts!

In recognition of Rosemarie Tichler’s extraordinary legacy of identifying and nurturing new generations of young actors, CSC has instituted The Rosemarie Tichler Fund. The Fund continues Ms. Tichler’s commitment to the future well-being of young actors by awarding a yearly grant to a promising young artist who merits such recognition, and has appeared on CSC’s stage that season. The Fund is particularly sensitive to helping young actors who have recently made the transition from their training into the profession.The grant, in the amount of $3,000, may be used by the recipient to continue any aspect of their training or to offset loans they may have incurred while studying their craft. Your fully tax-deductible donation helps us continue to support young actors during this crucial stage in their careers.
