Support Berkeley Rep > Endowments
Retaining the core values upon which this company was founded 40 years ago requires the long-term commitment of our supporters. The following is a list of endowment funds established to benefit various programs and artistic initiatives at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. We are grateful for the generous support these individuals and institutions have provided in ensuring the long-term vitality of our artistic programming and helping to build the next generation of theatre talent and audiences.
