The gift of a lifetime
Where we have come from, and our journey ahead is only possible because of ballet lovers like you.
Since 1990, hundreds of generous supporters have made provisions for the company with gifts in their wills and, subsequently, laid a solid foundation for the company to survive and thrive.
Our recent experience of living through the pandemic has reinforced how transformational the generosity of our bequestors is to the future of the company. Now, as we advance further into this historic era of artistry led by David Hallberg, you can create a legacy that will build an even brighter future for the next generation of artists, creative workers, and audiences.
Every gift, no matter how big or small, makes a difference. And all gifts received in this way are capital protected and invested in a long-term fund to create perpetual income, that becomes an integral part of the company’s resources and underpins our financial strength.
With this heartfelt decision – the ultimate celebration of life and the art form – your story becomes part of ours and you play an important role in our ongoing success, ensuring we can continue to uplift and delight audiences for years to come.
We invite you to start a conversation with your local Planned Giving Manager about how you can pass on your love of ballet to future generations by including The Australian Ballet in your will, or view our Planned Giving Brochure to find out more.
“Being a bequestor means that my love of ballet and The Australian Ballet will live on forever. And what greater gift is there than to be dancing that pas de deux throughout the future of this great company!” David McAllister AC, Artistic Director 2001 – 2020, Bequestor and Planned Giving Ambassador
