Ballet Austin Foundation

Our Vision: To build Ballet Austin Foundation’s financial base, empowering our organization now and for the future.

The Ballet Austin Foundation was established in 1998. It is a separate 501 (c) (3) organization governed by its own board of trustees and advisory council. It exists solely to benefit Ballet Austin.

A gift to the Ballet Austin Foundation represents the financial future of Ballet Austin through compounded growth of assets and dividends. Gifts can be made through endowments, memorials and planned giving.
