Partner in Our Future
Your gift to the Endowment Foundation is an investment in The National Ballet of Canada and a legacy for future artists and audiences. A strong endowment helps ensure the long-term financial stability of the National Ballet and gives confidence to the company's leadership to plan and pursue ambitious artistic goals.
"The extraordinary generosity of our donors is truly inspiring, the heart of a story of exceptional growth that has transformed the scale of the Endowment Foundation. Together we are helping to secure a bright and prosperous future for The National Ballet of Canada." David Macdonald, Chair, The National Ballet of Canada, Endowment Foundation
Established in 1999 with an original gift of $100,000, the National Ballet’s Endowment Foundation currently manages $74.6 million* in investments, raised through the generosity of private donors, corporate gifts and government matching programmes. Income from this capital provides ongoing funding to the National Ballet in order to develop its talented artists, produce innovative new works and share this repertoire with audiences nationally and internationally for years to come.
