President of Annual Giving
Annual Giving has been the lifeblood of The Australian Ballet since 1989 and the program continues to be one of the most meaningful ways you can reinforce the stability of the company today.
In 2024, as the transformation of Melbourne’s Arts Precinct gains momentum, The Australian Ballet will temporarily move from the State Theatre, our much-loved home venue in Melbourne, to the historic Regent Theatre for three years.
As we prepare for this period of disruption in Melbourne, the ripples of which will be felt nationally, the power and potential of annual giving has never been so important.
If you’re in a position to, we invite you to support your national ballet company by making an annual gift to help sustain us at this time.
There are a range of giving levels to suit you, and gifts of all sizes underpin the company’s everyday activities – enabling and inspiring the work behind the scenes, that creates the magic audiences see on and off the stage.
Supporters of the Annual Giving program become a patron of The Australian Ballet and join a special community who have rallied around to preserve and protect the company they love, so it will continue to flourish into the future.
"I’ve been attending the Ballet for more than 40 years now. My affection and respect for the company, and admiration for our generous Ballet family grows every season. I encourage you to think about the difference you can make by becoming an Annual Giving patron, and the role you can play in setting the company we know and love up for a successful future." Natasha Bowness, President of Annual Giving
