Without all of our wonderful sponsors, State Street Ballet would be a magnificent idea without a home, without a performance venue, and without dancers. With your help, we bring more movement, light and beauty to the world. Individual gifts make up over 50 percent of our annual operating budget. Donations help support our artistic programming, educational outreach and professional dancers, choreographers, directors and production teams. These funds are raised through your generous participation in our Annual Fund. When you make a donation to State Street Ballet's Annual Fund, you ensure that we will continue to grow and make dance a vital part of the Santa Barbara community. We rely on your continuing support to ensure the future of dance as an art form. Contact us for more information on how you can contribute.
