Make a gift to The Joffrey Ballet, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, and support our community of artists and students of all ages and abilities through the transformative power of dance.

For 65 years, the Joffrey has relied on individuals and generous donors to support the organization’s work inside and outside of the studio. Individual donations have expanded programming on stage and in classrooms around Chicago, established the Joffrey Academy and Community Engagement programs, and strengthened the Joffrey’s reputation worldwide.

Your donation is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law. Gifts from Donor Advised Funds and Family Foundations are readily accepted. 

Join us for #GivingTuesday!

Support the Joffrey by participating in #GivingTuesday – an international day of generosity transforming communities around the world. A gift of any size will truly make an impact.

In honor of Giving Tuesday, Elizabeth Price, a long-time Joffrey friend and generous supporter, has offered a remarkable matching challenge: All gifts made on November 30 will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000.
