We believe ballet makes our community a more beautiful place. On stage. In the studio. In our neighborhoods.
Ticket sales and endowment cover just 50% of our annual expenses, so we depend on our donor family to help us keep the bar high and the art form accessible to all members of our community.
There are many ways to support PBT’s annual fund:
Mail a check (made payable to “Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre”) to:
Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre
c/o Development Office
2900 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15201
To make a contribution by phone via your credit card, please contact PBT’s Development office at 412-454-9127. Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express are accepted.
You could double your gift by taking advantage of your company’s matching gift program. Please ask your human resources department if your company participates. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees, board members, and/or spouses/partners.
Gifts of Stock
A gift of stock is tax-deductible at its fair market value at the time it is donated, even if its original cost to you was less. You will receive donor benefits based on the stock’s value when it is received by PBT. To receive information on how to transfer a gift of stock, please contact PBT’s Development Office.
Planned gifts enable you to have a lasting influence on Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. There are several ways to include Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre in your estate plans, which can be customized to match your personal financial plans and philanthropic goals. To discuss planned giving options, please contact PBT’s Development office.
Gifts by Bequest
Name PBT in your will or living trust and you can make a meaningful gift while maintaining control of your assets. Your gift may be either for a specific dollar figure or a percentage of your estate, and you may choose to include PBT as a contingent beneficiary.
Gifts that Provide Income
A gift such as a charitable remainder trust can enable you to claim a tax deduction for a portion of your gift, while they offer the option of providing income paid to yourself, a friend or family member. These gifts are ideal for PBT patrons who have highly appreciated stock.
Other Planned Gift Options
You can designate PBT as the beneficiary of your retirement plan assets or a life insurance policy, or you can donate your primary residence or vacation home while retaining lifetime residence rights.
