Individual Giving is vital to the success of Pennsylvania Ballet. Less than half of the Ballet’s revenue comes from ticket sales. Annual Fund contributions help to make up the remaining approximately 55% of our revenue each year.
Annual Fund contributions from individuals like you not only support the Ballet’s general operations (such as the costs associated with rehearsals and performances) but also fund the acquisition of new work, the Pennsylvania Ballet Orchestra, and help provide the resources needed to attract and retain world-class dancers. Annual Fund dollars also go to providing essentials such as costumes, pointe shoes, and physical therapy for our dancers. Your gift will also support Pennsylvania Ballet’s community outreach and education initiatives.
Beginning September 2013, in honor of our 50th Anniversary, four Board of Trustee members have pledged $1 million to the Annual Fund if we can raise $3 million in new & increased donations. Please help us reach this goal!
Thank you for considering a gift to Pennsylvania Ballet’s Annual Fund. Donations of all sizes help make a difference – every dollar counts. We could not continue to perform without the generosity of our individual donors!
