Save the Date! Your support goes twice as far on GivingTuesday, December 1st.*

Ready to spread some serious goodness?

Amid the chaos and uncertainty, we have a wonderful opportunity to connect, to spread kindness, to make an impact in our community!

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform the world.

It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Since then, GivingTuesday has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

This year, on GivingTuesday, we are asking YOU to help us build a bridge to the Barclay's future.

On March 14, 2020, after almost 30 years of continuous operation as one of the community’s most beloved institutions and California’s most imaginative performing arts venues, the Barclay was abruptly forced to shut down. Yet even with our doors closed and modest resources, the Barclay has been committed to exploring innovative, new ways to present distinctive, powerful performances that delight and inspire audiences of all generations, at affordable prices. 

With your support, the Barclay can emerge from this crisis stronger than ever and continue to broaden the scope, availability, and appreciation of the arts in Orange County.

Your contribution will help ensure that the Barclay will have the resources to implement a flexible, new model of bringing programming to the community in the context of current restrictions, and in the future. 

Together, we can build a bridge to the theatre's next 30 years and continue to create a stronger, more vibrant community through the performing arts.

Thank you for your commitment to the arts and to the Barclay!


Facebook has announced a gift match for GivingTuesday! Facebook will match the first $7 million in donations made through Facebook starting at 5 AM on GivingTuesday.

That means, on GivingTuesday, your generosity could have double the impact! Please consider making a contribution to the Barclay's Facebook fundraiser on December 1st.

Be sure to follow our Facebook event to stay up-to-date on the Barclay's GivingTuesday plans.

Can't wait until GivingTuesday? You can start building a bridge to the Barclay's future today!
