“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


As a charity, we rely on the generosity of donors to support our work. Already, The Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund has done so much, including contributing to our wonderful home at Tramway in Glasgow.

As Scottish Ballet approaches its 50th year, we invite you to consider making our future a part of your legacy.


Every gift, no matter what size, makes a difference to us.

The Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund helps to support new initiatives at Scottish Ballet. That could mean commissioning new work or musical scores, supporting talented young dancers, or investing in our communities through transformational education programmes.

You could also help us to reach new audiences. Already, over 100,000 come to see us every year at venues across Scotland, the United Kingdom and internationally. We could reach even more.


Whether you have a Will or are yet to prepare one, it is easy to leave a legacy to The Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund. In the first instance, we suggest you speak to your solicitor. If you choose to do so, you can tell us of your bequest.

As a thank you, we will invite you to join The Darrell Bequest Circle, named after our founder, and exclusively for those who have left us a legacy.
