TBT Relief Fund

Turnout for Tomorrow

To donate, click here.

Since March, Texas Ballet Theater (TBT) has faced significant organizational challenges head on. The immediate outpouring of support and encouragement from our patrons has been invaluable for finding our footing during the early phase of the Relief Fund, and we extend our most heartfelt gratitude. As public health circumstances for the community continue to evolve, so do Texas Ballet Theater’s priorities for innovation and creative opportunities to provide excellent and quality programming to an expanded and diverse audience. To date, TBT continues to:

However, the revenue losses to Texas Ballet Theater have been significant, and our financial situation continues to be dire as we enter the new fiscal year. This next phase of the Relief Fund will be imperative to TBT’s ability to continue creating exciting programming that engages our community and creates the necessary revenue to sustain operations.

We ask that you continue to join us in our efforts and come together as we work to Turnout for Tomorrow. Your donations to the Relief Fund, engagement with our online programming, and subscriptions for the 2020-2021 season will allow Texas Ballet Theater to lift our community through recovery and beyond.

Most Sincerely,

Ben Stevenson, O.B.E., Artistic Director | Vanessa Logan, Executive Director
