Planned Giving
Live a Legacy



Name Ballet Spartanburg in your will or living trust allows you to provide for the future of Ballet Spartanburg while maintaining control of your current assets. You can choose a dollar amount or percentage of your estate, or include Ballet Spartanburg as a contingent beneficiary.


The IRA Charitable Rollover provision allows individuals who have reached age 70½ to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.

The IRA current gifts rollover is very simple. The transfer is directly from the IRA to Ballet Spartanburg, a qualified not for profit charity. The IRA rollover is not taxable on the donor’s tax return and there is therefore no need for a tax deduction. It is a nice, simple and effective way of making a charitable gift. It also helps to satisfy your required minimum distribution.  


There are many ways to include Ballet Spartanburg in your estate planning. We can help with your personal philanthropic goals. To discuss Planned Giving, contact Tracey Cline, Accountant for Ballet Spartanburg at 


If your firm or company offers a matching gift program, you are credited with the entire contribution. Many companies even match gifts made by board members or retirees.

Ballet Spartanburg

Education. Outreach. Performance.

The joyful picture above of children from Sidewalk Hope, an inner-city ministry in Spartanburg, captures the essence and innocence of joy, hope, and the connections that are created when we dance.  Sidewalk Hope participated in the 2018 So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg! community event, a fundraiser in partnership with 10 local organizations. The picture above reflects opportunity, joy, happiness, dance and above all, who we are as an organization: education, outreach and performance. 

The happiness in dancing on stage is reflected in this precious little dancer's eyes and body.  Arms open, lights aglow, feet planted firmly on the stage, basking joyfully from a successful performance. This is the feeling we have as we anticipate returning to the stage this October with the premiere of Carlos Agudelo's, The Wizard of Oz. Ballet Spartanburg and its Board of Trustees and staff will monitor and adjust all health and safety precautions as directed by the CDC. We are ready to dance. We are ready to see our audience. We are ready.

Thank you for your continued love and support for 55 years. Onto our 56th season we go! Now follow the yellow brick road and grab your SEASON TICKETS TODAY!
