"I want this theatre to have the security of an endowment so that we may continue to engage and inspire audiences for generations to come."
- Craig Noel

The Craig Noel League was established in November 2000 to build the endowment and secure the legacy that Craig Noel and countless others fashioned for The Old Globe. The League honors those thoughtful friends who help to secure our future through a gift by will or trust. Please join us in thanking these very generous friends who are helping to build a strong future for The Old Globe for years to come!
