Sharing Our Commitment to the Arts

OBT is grateful to the Foundation and Government funders who support our work and help advance our mission. OBT receives generous grants from a number of institutional funders who value our work onstage and in the community and share our commitment to arts education.

OBT depends upon new and ongoing partnerships such as these to bring world-class ballet productions to local audiences, integrated arts learning to K-12 students and free public events like OBT Exposed! to the community. Grants provide critical revenue that supports diverse and inspiring artistic programming, comprehensive Education Outreach, and special projects that help to improve the organization’s capacity and operations.

Please contact or 503.227.0977 ext. 259 for more information.

OBT is supported in part by:

The Regional Arts & Culture Council, including support from the City of Portland, Multnomah County, the Arts Education & Access Fund, and more than 1,000 donors to RACC’s Arts Impact Fund

Oregon Ballet Theatre is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Oregon Ballet Theatre receives support from the Oregon Arts Commission, a state agency funded by the State of Oregon and the National Endowment for the Arts.
