Annual Contributions

The philanthropic commitment of many members of our community allows Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley to produce outstanding performances and provide arts education and training for the benefit of the entire Bay Area. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies who have given so generously to support our programs this season. For donor information and benefits, please call Michelle D’Alo, Development Coordinator, at 408.288.2820 x222, or email mdalo@siliconvalleyballet.org.
