We hope that patrons and donors who are fortunate to have stable financial means will continue to support the arts. Thank You!

Ballet Sponsorship:

Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota, is a public, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. To fund its operations TCB relies on fundraising events, ticket sales, silent auctions, raffles, and most of all donations from private and corporate sponsors. Help keep the dream alive; your tax-deductible support is greatly appreciated.

Our Volunteers

Twin Cities Ballet relies on the support of the amazing women and men who donate their valuable time to volunteer for us. With over 200 volunteers, TCB is able to create our high-quality and professional productions, run educational outreaches, and bring dance and the arts to our community.

Our main volunteer organization, the “Friends of the Ballet” consists of 6 separate committees: Costume & Wardrobe, Hair & Makeup, Events, Props, Boutique, and Marketing & Communications. Lead by our amazing leads–Irene Wagner,  Katie Sutherland, Colleen LoPresto, Emily McGuire, Emily Winn and Tianna Votiso– these committees consist of parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, and supporters who generously volunteer their time to sew, glue, prepare the flowers, organize, build and fix props, lay down the floor, etc. 

Many thanks to our amazing volunteers!

We have multiple levels of Support to Suit every Budget!

Direct financial contributions include donations of cash or goods or gift cards with quantifiable cash value, and financial sponsorship of either individual ballet characters or an entire single performance. These donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

You may also provide In-kind service support: both cash and in-kind support are critical to TCB’s mission and strategic plan, and are publically recognized.
