SUPPORT

HELP US KEEP ON DANCING!

The COVID-19 pandemic has been hard for all of us. Oklahoma City Ballet is doing everything possible to stay afloat during this uncertain time, but as a nonprofit which relies on 57% earned income, we are forecasting huge losses. Our March production was cancelled after one night, we had to postpone our April production, and our Yvonne Chouteau School has been closed since early March.

Now more than ever, we need your support.
Please consider a donation to Oklahoma City Ballet to help us keep on dancing.

You can take advantage of a new Charitable Giving Incentive as part of the CARE stimulus package that includes an above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemizer deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to contributions you make in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year. The bill also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60% of adjusted gross income to 100%.

SUPPORT OKLAHOMA
CITY BALLET

Oklahoma City Ballet is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is powered by the generosity of our donors. Without this crucial support, we would lack half of the funds necessary not only to stage our professional productions but also to continue to provide our programs that extend the artistry and athleticism of ballet to wide audiences.

Every one of your financial gifts allows us to present new works, sustain our dancers, provide live music, fund scholarships through The Yvonne Chouteau Dance School, and engage with the community through our various programs.

DONATE BY PHONE

Please call us on weekdays between the hours of 9:00 AM–5:00 PM.
