The Joffrey Ballet is pleased to support fundraising events for non-profit organizations through the donation of performance tickets.
Each year, we receive hundreds of requests for charitable ticket donations. We are pleased to donate performance tickets to other organizations, auctions, or benefit functions.
The Joffrey is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and it is our policy to donate only to other 501(c)(3) organizations. We would like to grant all requests, but as a non-profit organization, we must limit the number of contributions we make. Priority will be given to the following:
- Arts and cultural organizations
- Education organizations
- Social Service organizations
- Medical organizations and medical research
- Animal welfare organizations
- Sponsors of Joffrey raising funds for not-for-profit organizations
We can give only once per season to each beneficiary group. The beneficiary of your event may have already received a donation from us, since multiple events often benefit a single group.
We will make no donations that benefit a specific religious or political organization or any organization which represents an issue generally regarded as political.
No donations will be made that benefit a specific individual or family.
We do not issue monetary donations.
Donations are limited to fundraising events only; we do not provide door prizes.
Donation requests must be received six (6) weeks prior to your event and submitted via mail or email. The request must be submitted on your non-profit's letterhead. Requests may take one (1) to two (2) weeks to process. Approved requests will be sent via ground mail.
No phone call solicitations please.
Please send all written requests to:
