Foundation Giving

Richmond Ballet continues to thrive and inspire a new generation of dance lovers daily, thanks in part to the generosity of private foundations and public funders.

These gifts help make possible all that we do and offer, from the commissioning of new ballets and the performance of classic works to the training of young dancers and the education of the community through outreach to maintaining our state-of-the-art facility. With this support, Richmond Ballet is able to fulfill its mission to “awaken and uplift the human spirit” through dance.
