Just as benefactors have always been at the centre of arts and culture, our Benefactors are at the heart of our story.
Underpinning every aspect of our work, the fantastic commitment, dedication and passion we receive from our Benefactors echoes that of our dancers on stage.
Become a Benefactor and you will play a vital role in:
- Fostering creativity and innovation as we produce new work and tell distinctive and imaginative stories
- Supporting our dancers to excel in their training and performance
- Nurturing the next generation of talent through our world-class Academy training
- Inspiring and engaging people from all walks of life to take part in our outreach work across the community and beyond
Each and every Benefactor donation is vital to ensuring we can continue to do what we do best. Without philanthropic support we would not be able to tell inventive and innovative stories through ballet, or take the joy of dance to communities nationwide.
To say thank you for your incredible generosity you will receive a range of unique benefits so you can experience every step of the creative process. With special events throughout the season, as a Benefactor you will see life at Northern Ballet behind the scenes, meet our dancers and creative teams and share in our productions as they take shape. You will also see the impact of your support beyond the stage, with opportunities to experience first-hand our outstanding learning and outreach work.
Ways to support
Each level of giving offers a range of benefits in return for your generous support.
