Sharing Our Commitment to the Arts

OBT is grateful to the Foundation and Government funders who support our work and invest in our mission to share, inspire, and connect. Grants provide critical revenue that support diverse and expressive artistic programs and fund special projects that help to improve the organization’s capacity and operations.

OBT relies on new and ongoing partnerships to increase access to arts and culture experiences in schools, provide scholarships for the next generation of dancers to attend The OBT School, and bring world-class ballet productions to local audiences.

For more information, contact Grants Manager Allison Wales: or 503.227.0977 ext. 206.
