Why Should I Make an Endowed Gift?

Your gift to establish an endowment is an investment in the future—an investment that makes a real difference in the lives of our dancers, musicians, and staff by enhancing their artistic excellence, community involvement and creative collaboration.

What is an Endowment?

Cincinnati Ballet’s endowment is composed of both unrestricted and restricted funds established by donors for specific purposes, such as named scholarships or creative initiatives. Each year, a percentage of the endowment’s 36-month rolling average is distributed to benefit the company. The rest is re-invested to ensure growth, maintaining the fund’s spending power far into the future.

How Do I Make an Endowed Gift?

An endowed fund can be established through an outright gift, estate or planned gift and is a great way to link your legacy with the ballet’s future.
