Endowment Foundation

Partner in Our Future

Double your Impact!
All gifts are eligible to be matched by the Endowment Incentives Component of the Canada Cultural Investment Fund.

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.

Established in 1999 with an original gift of $100,000, the investments within National Ballet’s Endowment Foundation grew to a high of $100 million in 2021/22 before the impact of current market volatility. We're grateful for the generosity of private and corporate donors as well as government matching programmes for their contributions. 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.
