Friends of the Ballet
Please consider becoming a member of our family. With your help, Virginia Ballet Company and School can continue its mission of providing accessible and affordable professional quality performances to enhance the cultural interest and education of the people living in our community. While we have a very loyal patron following and student enrollment in the school has increased, these funds rarely cover our expenses that continue to rise dramatically for everything from rent, utilities and salaries to the cost of mounting productions.
Virginia Ballet Company & School invites our patrons to help us expand existing programs and develop new programs. Your donation will help with maintaining our facility, making new costumes, repairing existing costumes, increasing advertising for our school and faculty, building new sets, improving the design/production of programs, supporting our scholarship programs and sponsoring master classes.
Memberships start at $25. Some of the member benefits include free tickets to performances, special invitations to events and VIP check-in at performances. Virginia Ballet Company & School is a 501(c)3 and a portion of your membership is tax deductible. For more information, or to join our patron program on-line, please visit our website at www.virginiaballetcompany.org.
All friends of the Ballet will be recognized in the program for the season (Sept—Aug)
Benefits are applied within the season (Sept—Aug). If joining on-line, the date is automatically applied. If paying by check, the date is based on the date that the check is processed. Please indicate if you would like the staff to hold the check until after Sept 1st (for those donating in August).
