Most of the GUILD's events, among them its signature SPEAKING OF SHAKESPEARE series at the National Arts Club in Manhattan, are free and open to the public. That is as it should be, becuase we are a not-for-profit educational organization. But of course the fact that the majority of our offerings are admission-free does not mean that they are cost-free. Like the schools, colleges, universities, libraries, museums, orchestras, religious institutions, public radio and television stations, and other charities we all help with donations and membership contributions, the GUILD is in constant need of support from the generous constituents who enjoy and benefit from its initiatives and cherish the role it plays in preserving and perpetuating an intellectual, artistic, and cultural legacy that remains unparalleled.
Donations are welcome in any amount. But for those who wish to enroll and be acknowledged as GUILD members, several categories of membership affiliation are available: Subscriber ($50 a year). Contributor ($100), Donor ($250), Benefactor ($500), Patron ($1,000), and Sponsor ($5,000). Any contributions that are not offset by benefits received (such as waivers of registration fees at ceremonies like the UK THEATRE AWARDS luncheon at which the GIELGUD AWARD is now presented each October) are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
