The Royal New Zealand Ballet belongs to all New Zealanders, and we excel as your national ballet company because of New Zealanders.

Almost one third of our annual funding comes from sponsorship, grants, and charitable donations from individuals. These contributions are vital to the RNZB’s continuing success.

Significant funding from Te Manatū Taonga, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage, and income from ticket sales provide over 65% of our income, but these sources alone cannot sustain the RNZB’s work as a world-class company. 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 a love of ballet, and a way for every company or trust to invest in the cultural heart of New Zealand life.

Explore our opportunities for individuals and organisations, and join the dance. Whichever way you choose to support the RNZB, you can take pride in the significant role that you play in the success of New Zealand’s national ballet company.
