Ballet 5:8 is a 501-(c)-3 nonprofit organization. Though our financial needs are partially supported by earned income, such as ticket sales and tuition dollars, we rely on the additional support of a generous team of individual and business donors, nonprofit partners, performance sponsors, and public and private grants to cover up to 30% of our operating budget. These are individuals and organizations who believe in Ballet 5:8's mission and make our work - things like creating brand-new ballets, participating in free-to-the-public performances, and making financial aid scholarships available to students in our school - possible through their ongoing support. We like to call them the Ballet 5:8 Family.
You are cordially invited to join Ballet 5:8 for the 2016 Benefit Gala on Saturday September 10, 2016.
The Gala will mark the opening of Ballet 5:8’s fifth anniversary performing season.
Ballet 5:8 has become a forerunner in the unique but vital work of inspiring and equipping young artists, strengthening communities through access to the arts, and engaging audiences in meaningful discussion through honest, relevant, breathtaking dance.
Financial support raised at the annual Benefit Gala through donations, monthly pledges, and performance sponsorships sustains Ballet 5:8's work in a vital way, accounting for as much as half of our fiscal year need for contributed funds. Your gift or monthly pledge of any size can help us reach our $21,000 Benefit Gala goal and meet that half-way mark as we open our fifth anniversary performing season.
