The Edwin E. Tuttle Society, named in honor of the Philadelphia Ballet’s former Board Chair, comprises the visionary supporters who have included the Ballet in their estate plans. Members enjoy unique opportunities, invitations to special events, and prominent recognition in playbills, programs, and other publications.

Philadelphia Ballet partners with the Philadelphia Foundation, one of the oldest and most respected community foundations in the nation, to provide estate planning services. We are happy to meet with you and your financial advisors to help tailor giving strategies that best meet your needs.
