Invest in the Best of the World

Annual Fund Giving Levels

Our 2021 donor benefits have changed due to the unprecedented circumstances facing our present-day society. Contributions are fully tax-deductible for donors who gave less than $2,500 cumulatively in 2021. For donors who gave at the Leadership Barre Society level of $2,500 or more, contributions have a fair market value of $85 unless waived.

Below are examples of the donor benefits typically offered during our season. We will revisit this page in the coming months when it once again becomes possible to offer special benefits. For more information, please contact the Development office at 445.544.8415 or at [email protected].

Leadership Barre

The Leadership Barre Society (annual supporters of $2,500 and above) demonstrates a significant investment in Philadelphia Ballet’s success and sustainability. A contribution at this level helps us to attract and retain world-class dancers, artistic staff, choreographers, and musicians, as well as invest in new, innovative choreographic works. Leadership Barre supporters also provide the support necessary to preserve Philadelphia Ballet’s reputation as a leading cultural institution in Philadelphia – from upholding the highest artistic standards to bringing the art of dance to our community, and providing scholarship assistance for the talented and underserved students at The School of Philadelphia Ballet.

Leadership Barre members receive all annual fund supporter benefits (season event guide, admission to six dress rehearsals for you and a guest, invitations to working studio rehearsals, evening technical rehearsals, a signed pair of pointe shoes, and year-round Playbill listing) plus the additional benefits outlined below!
