The Royal New Zealand Ballet is an intrinsic part of New
Zealand's national heritage, and has the largest following of all
New Zealand performing arts companies.
We are fortunate to receive significant funding from Te Manatū
Taonga, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage. But this, together
with income from ticket sales, is not enough to sustain the RNZB's
work as a truly national company. Sponsorship, grants, donations
and legacies now make up more than 25% of our annual operating
income and are vital to the company's continuing success.
We need you. Every gift, of any size, makes a difference, and is
always put to good use.
There is a place for each individual who wants to express their
love of ballet, and a way for every company or trust to invest in
the cultural heart of New Zealand life:
Donate now - make a gift
The Dress Circle -
ongoing involvement for individual supporters
Partner a Dancer -
support one of our talented company dancers
Make a gift in
your will - help to secure the long term future of the
partnerships - align your company with some of New Zealand's
highest profile performers
Foundations - help to keep the RNZB a truly national company
benefiting the community
We are always pleased to speak with potential supporters and
welcome interest from all individuals and organisations who want to
experience the satisfaction and delight of a dynamic relationship
with the arts.
