The support provided by Globe Guilders to The Old Globe touches practically every aspect of its operation. Some examples of the Guilders’ support activities include:
- Fund raising for artistic, education and community programs
- Producing the highly acclaimed annual Celebrating Couture Fashion Show – a year-long endeavor.
- Creating several seasonal fund raising events each year
- Coordinating fund raising tours to social and entertainment events
- Supporting the Master of Fine Arts Program
- Hosting Company Call and Production Kick-off meetings
- Encouraging attendance to The Globe by coordinating group theatre events for each play
- Hosting December Nights at The Old Globe every Holiday season
- Welcoming visiting actors, producers, directors, writers and designers, as well as Globe staff members, by hosting Company Call and Production Kick-off meetings – a most welcome privilege of membership
- Promoting The Old Globe’s artistic, education and community programs through personal relationships, social media and the Globe Guilders website
- Fostering collaboration with other philanthropic organizations, for mutual benefit
- Serving as good will ambassadors for the Theatre in the community
Many Guilders are also involved in other aspects of volunteering at the Globe, such as working with the Education Department as Globe Docents. In all, volunteer support provided by Globe Guilders saves thousands of dollars for The Old Globe every year. By the same token, our volunteer members receive great satisfaction from promoting and sustaining the performing arts in San Diego at The Old Globe Theatre.
