Miami City Ballet applauds our foundation and government partners, whose generous funding makes every great moment of world-class artistry and community impact possible. Foundation and government grants sustain the Company’s annual operations, support the commissioning of new works, and provide arts access to thousands of traditionally underserved children each year.

Major funding for Miami City Ballet is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Ford Foundation. MCB performances, outreach and education activities are made possible by the generous support of the Louis B. Mayer Foundation,  The Shubert Foundation, and Hearst Foundations.

Miami-Dade County support is provided by the Miami-Dade County Tourist Development Council, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners with additional support provided by the City of Miami Beach, Cultural Affairs program, and the Cultural Arts Council. Miami City Ballet in the Palm Beaches is generously supported in part by the Board of County Commissioners, the Tourist Development Council and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.  Broward County funding is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council and Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. The Company is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
