"The Foundation is vital to continuing our tradition of nurturing home-grown talent. We have the creativity and determination that comes from the spirit of this great country with an in-built need to strive for excellence. We are in position, we are poised, and we are ready to embrace the future."
David McAllister AM, Artistic Director
The Australian Ballet Foundation is the backbone of The Australian Ballet, providing a secure capital base for the company. Established in the 1980s, this fund has built the home we live in today, enabled many international touring engagements and helped the Ballet commission new work and develop young dancers for great careers.
Your gift can be directed towards the Foundation, where it will be invested. The income earned goes towards company operations, allowing the company to confidently plan national and international touring schedules, commission new works, and continuously look to the greatest choreographers and creators in the world to come and share their skill with The Australian Ballet.
