Public Support

Financial support is provided by The City of San Diego. The Old Globe is funded by the County of San Diego. Special thanks to the County of San Diego Board of Supervisors and Cultural Arts Chula Vista.



We thank all our generous patrons and supporters—including government funders—who help make theatre matter to more people. All public funding represents less than three percent of our annual budget, but that support, especially from The City of San Diego, is crucial. Please tell your local and state representatives that theatre matters to you. If you support public funding for the arts, as the majority of Americans does*, contact them today.
