Grants made by the Royal New Zealand Ballet Foundation support artists and individual projects and will contribute to the ongoing costs of nurturing and staging world-class ballet in New Zealand, including through its support of the Royal New Zealand Ballet.
Grants are made at the discretion of the Trustees, and in accordance with the Trust’s objective of supporting, promoting, and advancing classical ballet.
Interested individuals and organisations with queries, or anyone looking to support a particular project or artist through a donation to the Ballet Foundation, should email firstname.lastname@example.org
Until our sustainable fund reaches $1 million, we are not accepting direct applications for grants. Please see our granting policy for more information.
