INSTRUCTIONS FOR REQUESTING A TICKET DONATION


Thank you for your interest in including Georgia Shakespeare in the silent auction portion of your charitable event. 

The following are our new guidelines as of March 2013, for issuing complimentary tickets to organizations requesting donations.

Georgia Shakespeare asks two things from an organization in return. First, we ask that someone from the organization volunteer as an usher during one of our shows.  By being involved in the arts, one can really appreciate what it takes to make live theatre happen. Also, we ask that you write to one of our government funding sources to let them know how important arts funding is to your organization and/or to your community. By thanking them for funding the arts, you help assure that it keeps on happening! For a sample letter and commissioner contact information, scroll to the bottom of the page.  When you’ve completed the letter, please send a copy with your request for our files and you may call the Box Office at 404.504.1473 to schedule a time to usher.

Mail, fax or email a written request on your organization’s letterhead at least eight weeks in advance to: 

ATTN: Ticket Donations 
Georgia Shakespeare 
4484 Peachtree Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30319 

Fax: 404.584.8815 
Email: boxoffice@gashakespeare.org

Georgia Shakespeare typically provides 2 single tickets valid for any regularly scheduled performance for any show in the current season. The value of these tickets is up to $70. Special requests (more than 2 single tickets) must be included with the original letter and will be determined by the box office.

Thank you for your cooperation and continued support of Georgia Shakespeare. We wish you luck with your upcoming event!

YOUR COMMISSIONER 
Dekalb County Board of Commissioners

Decatur, GA 30030 

Dear Commissioner Smith:

I am writing as a supporter of community arts funding. I understand and welcome the Fulton County Board of Commissioners' unwavering support of community arts organizations in Atlanta. Your support is crucial and will facilitate the success and continued growth of Atlanta's arts organizations.

As an employee of a non-profit organization, we depend on the kindness of citizens and businesses of our community to help fund our programs. Most often, our fundraising events include silent auctions and we solicit throughout the community for auction items. We have received enormous amounts of tickets from the arts community, including Georgia Shakespeare. Their commitment to building stronger partnerships within Atlanta is to be applauded.

Please continue to support the arts in Atlanta. Without them, we are all affected.

Sincerely, 
(your name here)
