Ballet Austin Foundation

Our Vision

To build the financial base and secure the future of Ballet Austin. The Ballet Austin Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) established in 1998 existing solely to benefit Ballet Austin. Through compounded growth of assets and dividends, endowed or planned gifts secure the future of our organization. 

Gifts to the Ballet Austin Foundation can be made through an endowment. Additionally, gifts may be made through a planned giving instrument and are recognized with membership in The Legacy Circle.

Endowment Opportunities

A production, program, or scholarship endowment gift to the Ballet Austin Foundation supports the works Artistic Director Stephen Mills brings to the stage as well as the creation of new works, our scholarship program, and educational opportunities. The investment you make in the Ballet Austin Foundation ensures the future of these programs for Ballet Austin. 

We offer personalized benefits based on the production, program, or scholarship endowed. For more information about benefits and opportunities with an Endowment Gift, please contact the Development Office at 512.476.9151, ext. 114.
