A Lasting Legacy for The Joffrey Ballet

You are here

After six decades as a leading international ballet company and now proudly rooted in Chicago for more than 20 years, The Joffrey Ballet stands taller than ever before, poised to reach even higher levels of cultural and civic impact. 

From reimagined classics to world-premiere works, we carry forward our founders’ belief in celebrating ballet’s rich history while advancing the art form through bold, audacious artistic vision. Our vibrant repertoire garners accolades in Chicago and around the world, and our powerful, relevant work resonates within our ever-larger and more diverse audience. 

Whether it’s through our work on stage or our training and education programs, the Joffrey has the power to shape lives and build community in unique and profound ways. Now more than ever, people seek shared experiences that bring beauty, inspiration, and joy to their lives.

In order to continue serving our city through dance, we need your support. In addition to generous donations from individuals and organizations that support the Joffrey’s mission year after year, planned gifts make a significant impact that allow us to grow our endowment and better plan for the future. More importantly, planned gifts are deeply personal and allow us to honor our donors’ legacies through our commitment to artistic excellence.

If dance has made a lasting impression on your life, consider leaving a legacy gift to the art form that has so moved you. By including the Joffrey in your estate plans with a bequest or other planned gift, you can make a transformational contribution that costs nothing during your lifetime.

We invite you to join us in taking this next step toward securing the future of world-class ballet in Chicago.
