Annual Fund Contributors

The artistic, educational, & engagement programs of Milwaukee Ballet are made possible by the generous support of our friends. While space limitations prevent us from listing gifts under $500, Milwaukee Ballet gratefully acknowledges the generosity of all of our donors.

This donor list reflects gifts given December 1, 2020, to January 1, 2022. Please contact the Development Department at 414.902.2114 with any questions regarding your listing.
