Our members are generous supporters of dance and truly help make everything at New York City Ballet possible. Thank you for considering a donation to the Company.


Membership  –  When you join NYCB’s Circle of Friends, our membership program, you gain access to opportunities and services that will enhance your experience as an audience member. Memberships start at just $100.  A full list of benefits and non-deductible amounts per level, please visit the Membership page.

Gift Membership  –  A gift membership makes a wonderful birthday or holiday present. The recipient of your gift of membership will enjoy insider benefits for a full year, and you will receive acknowledgment of your gift for tax purposes. For a full list of benefits and non-deductible amounts per level, please visit the Membership page.

Gifts in Honor of or in Memory of a Loved One  –  You may designate your donation as a gift “In Honor of” or “In Memory of” another person. We will send an acknowledgment to you, as well as a special notice to your honoree and/or their family.

100% Tax-deductible Gifts  –  You may choose to make your gift fully tax-deductible by declining benefits for any donation over $100. These donations provide the Company with much needed support and allow the donors to claim their gifts as 100% tax-deductible.
