Individual Giving

Gifts to the Richmond Ballet Annual Fund support the Ballet’s general operations, or you may designate your gift to support the Professional Company, The School of Richmond Ballet or Minds In Motion.

Whether you choose to become a member of the Cabriole Circle or the Friends Circle, every contribution makes a difference and advances our mission to “awaken and uplift the human spirit” through the art of dance.

We could not do it without you and appreciate your generosity!

Richmond Ballet gratefully accepts gifts of cash and stock. You can also donate online. Gifts may be mailed to
