Join a community who makes very special things happen

For 60 years and counting, our community of philanthropic supporters have helped us realise our boldest ambitions and overcome our greatest challenges.

The Australian Ballet’s technical and artistic excellence, diverse and dynamic repertoire, accessible and inclusive community engagement, and extensive touring footprint are all possible because of generations of ballet lovers, like you.

In 2024, we enter a period of change as the transformation of the Melbourne Arts Precinct gains momentum. While financially challenging, this time will also present abundant opportunities to think creatively and innovate. We are approaching this chapter with resilience, artistic spirit, and big ambitions to continue the evolution of the company and art form long into the future.

At this pivotal time, we’re inviting our nearest and dearest to show their love for our artists, our company and art form by making a gift to unlock our true potential.

All gifts of $2 and above are tax-deductible and everyone who makes a donation will receive a copy of Talking Pointe, our biannual magazine for The Australian Ballet’s giving community.

Contact the Philanthropy Team or call 1300 752 900 if you have any questions.
Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm (AEST).
