KEEP THE WONDER OF WORLD-CLASS BALLET ALIVE

The rich tradition of philanthropy at The Australian Ballet began just a few weeks after the company was founded in September 1962. Ever since, our community of philanthropic supporters has made many of the key moments in the life of The Australian Ballet possible and ensured we can continue to inspire and delight audiences through the power of our performances.

We depend on ticket sales for over 60% of our annual income. Unfortunately, due to the extraordinary events of the past 18 months, we have lost in excess of $34 million in box office revenue. Thanks to our devoted community of supporters, we are still here today. 

We invite you to join us by making a gift to keep our company running, our artists performing and the art form thriving. Your generosity will help to keep world-class ballet in Australia for generations to come and support David Hallberg's vision as he continues to forge a new creative path forward for company. All gifts of $2 and above are tax-deductible.

Individuals who give to the company are welcomed into our community and invited to get to know the dancers and teams behind the curtains who create the magic you see on stage.

Below are just some of the ways you can get involved and be a part of our future.
