‘I have been able to watch Scottish Ballet perform, flourish, move to its own space at Tramway and build an international reputation. I could not be more proud. Leaving a legacy is a way for me to say thank you and to play a small part in ensuring the long-term future of this remarkable ballet company.’

Susan Anderson


Established in 2008, leaving a legacy to the Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund helps to build a resilient, dynamic future for the company. Your gift will also support meaningful initiatives such as commissioning new work or musical scores, supporting talented young dancers, or investing in our communities through transformational Engagement programmes.

Remembering Scottish Ballet in your Will provides essential long-term support to enable the company to reach out to and inspire more people, especially young people and those in need. Scottish Ballet currently performs to more than 110,000 performances annually at venues across Scotland, the United Kingdom and internationally. We could reach even more with your support via a legacy.

Whether you have a Will or are yet to prepare one, it is easy to leave a legacy to the Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund. Even 1% will make a huge difference. Click here to find out how to include Scottish Ballet in your Will.


In honour of Peter Darrell and his visionary leadership as Scottish Ballet's founding Artistic Director, and in recognition of the significant role legacies play securing our future, confirmed legatees are invited to join The Darrell Bequest Circle.

While many do not seek recognition, we encourage everyone who has included Scottish Ballet in their Will to notify us. Joining our ballet family in this way enables you to enjoy insights into the life of the company including special functions and behind-the-scenes events, publications and recognition in souvenir programs and annual reports (unless you wish to remain anonymous).
