The Time is Now Capital Campaign Donors

The Time is Now: The Campaign for Atlanta Ballet is a $23.5 million fundraising campaign with a goal of $13.5M for capital expenditures and a goal of $10M for endowment. The campaign allowed Atlanta Ballet to expand its education and outreach efforts; grow its endowment; increase earned revenue further by building audiences through balanced programming, including the all-new production of The Nutcracker; and, as always, strengthen the artistic caliber. The Time is Now campaign was Atlanta Ballet’s essential next step, building on past successes to create an enduring legacy of great cultural and community impact. Atlanta Ballet is grateful to each individual and organization listed below that made a pledge or gift to The Time is Now.

The Time is Now Capital Campaign Donors

A major component of The Time is Now campaign, and a central piece of Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin’s vision for Atlanta Ballet, was the creation of a new Nutcracker. After over 20 years and 488 performances of Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker, Atlanta Ballet determined it was time to create a new tradition, one that is reflective of Atlanta’s current culture and community. Creating a new Nutcracker, gives Atlantans a fresh performance and provides Atlanta Ballet the potential to grow new audiences. It is a signature opportunity to invest in joy for the over one million Atlantans who will see it over the next 20 years. After two years of planning, The Nutcracker premiered on December 8, 2018.
