Government & Foundations

Your Support Matters

Miami City Ballet is grateful for the support of our foundation and government partners, whose generous funding fortifies the breadth of our mission to produce and present the highest level of dance performances throughout Florida and the United States. Grant funding allows us to advance artistic excellence in classical ballet, deepen our commitment to holistic dance education, and eliminate barriers to the arts for thousands of community members at every level of arts exploration.

Major funding for Miami City Ballet provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, a national foundation with strong local roots, investing in journalism, in the arts, and in the success of cities where brothers John S. and James L. Knight once published newspapers. The Foundation’s goal is to foster informed and engaged communities, which they believe are essential for a healthy democracy.

Major funding also provided by the Ford Foundation, working with visionaries on the frontlines of social change worldwide.
