CRITICAL RELIEF FUND
An INSPIRING NEW CHALLENGE
SF Ballet's community helped turn one of our most devastating moments into an opportunity to be creative and forward-thinking. We asked for help and you responded with support beyond what we originally thought was possible, and we are so grateful. But, for the work of SF Ballet to continue, we must reach our goal of $5 million dollars for the Critical Relief Fund.
Last month we sparked a challenge to raise 3,126 gifts – the number of seats in the War Memorial Opera House – and the finish line is now in focus. Because of commitments from members of our Board of Trustees, every gift to the Critical Relief Fund will be matched, up to $1 million. We challenge you, our committed and inspiring community, to help us fill the gap and Opera House by the end of our fiscal year, June 30 – please join the Board challenge!
Our sincerest gratitude to our Trustees and Emeritus Trustees for their generosity!
We're grateful for you: #KINDCOMMENTS with SASHA DE SOLA
About the SF Ballet Critical Relief Fund
We launched the Critical Relief Fund in March to keep our workforce paid and health benefits in place, following the suspension of over 60% of San Francisco Ballet’s Repertory Season due to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. Now, we are actively reimagining our 2021 Season while planning for a safe return to the studio, stage, and War Memorial Opera House for our dancers and audience.
We’re calling on our community to support us during this time of uncertainty, as we continue to raise funds for our artists and the workforce that supports them. To date, we have raised over $3 million towards our future but we do not know how long it will take us to return to the stage. Please consider donating whatever you can to provide critical relief to the San Francisco Ballet family.
