Why Ride for Milwaukee Ballet?
50% of the pledges you collect are directly allocated to Milwaukee Ballet through UPAF. That's right - you're helping us raise valuable funds!
What is UPAF?
The United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) was established in 1967 to support performing arts groups in the Greater Milwaukee area. UPAF is Milwaukee Ballet's largest donor and is critical to the sustainability of our company. In 2015 UPAF allocated over $9 million to support the performing arts in our community!
