Ways to Give

Donate Online

The easiest way to make a contribution to Atlanta Ballet is through our secure online donation portal. You will receive an email confirmation immediately and a tax acknowledgement letter shortly after your donation date.

Gifts of Cash

Gifts of cash represent gifts made through credit/debit card transactions, outright cash, personal check/ cashier’s check, or money orders.

Please make all checks payable to Atlanta Ballet. Your gift should be mailed to:

Atlanta Ballet
Attn: Development Department
1695 Marietta Boulevard NW
Atlanta, GA 30318

You will receive an acknowledgement letter for your tax records shortly after your gift is received. To check your membership level, please visit our Individual Giving page.

For further information, please contact Lisa Dabney at ldabney@atlantaballet.com or 404-873-5811 ext. 223.

Gifts of Securities, Stocks, or Bonds

Gifts of securities, stocks, or bonds provide the same membership benefits as gifts of cash and can be a cost-effective way to donate. A gift of stock that has been held for more than a year allows you to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the donated stock as well as helping avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due upon their sale.

Please contact Lisa Dabney at 404-873-5811 ext. 223 or ldabney@atlantaballet.com for detailed instructions on transferring your gift to the Ballet’s brokerage account at Smith Barney.

Matching Gifts

A matching gift is the perfect opportunity to increase both your donation to Atlanta Ballet and your benefits without added cost to you. Many companies will match gifts of employees, board members, spouses, and retirees. If your employer has a matching gift program, please enclose a matching gift form with your contribution.

For more information on matching gifts, please contact Lisa Dabney at 404-873-5811 ext. 223 or ldabney@atlantaballet.com.
