An appeal from our dancers

Donate ballet shoes to a dancer

Our ballerinas dance through approximately  2,160 pairs of ballet shoes in every season. In the same period of time, male dancers require approximately 1,600 pairs of soft ballet shoes. By donating towards ballet shoes, you’ll make a significant contribution to our dancers’ ability to practice their unique profession.

Anniversary gifts

Do you have a birthday or anniversary coming up?

An anniversary gift is a great way to support opera and ballet arts. You can either donate to a fund or contact us to discuss donating to a bespoke purpose.

Major gifts

Would you like to consider making a major gift towards work you are passionate about?

According to income taxation law, donations of 850 to 50 000 euro to the Foundation of the Finnish National Opera and Ballet or the Opera and Ballet Grant Foundation are tax deductible for companies and organisations.

Legacy gifts

Leave a legacy for the arts

Would you like to leave a lasting legacy and help pass on opera and ballet to future generations? Contact us to discuss our different options to donate by will. You can choose to leave everything in your will or a smaller gift to a cause that is close to your heart.
