The Royal New Zealand Ballet Foundation is committed to growing a sustainable fund to support ballet in Aotearoa New Zealand now and into the future.

Each year, the Foundation Trustees fundraise to grow this fund, and the fund is invested wisely in order to ensure its stability.

Trustees are aiming to raise $1 million before allowing open applications to the Foundation, in line with its Granting Policy.

In 2022, the Foundation reached $710,173 in investments.
