"At Les Grands Ballets, every donation is important and makes a difference. Since its creation, the company is supported by numerous companies, foundations and donors who allow to develop its mission.

Since box office and Studios GB classes receipts cover only 44% of our operating costs, it is in part due to your donations that we are able to pursue our quest for excellence! By supporting the company’s activities, here and elsewhere, you are helping immeasurably to raise the profile of Les Grands Ballets.



Every donation counts and helps us pursue our cultural and social mission.

You can choose between several types of bequests, including a particular legacy, a universal legacy and more. You are free to change your will at any time, according to your needs and circumstances.

Gift of a Life Insurance Policy

With this type of donation, you can make a substantial donation at an affordable cost while simultaneously lightening your tax burden and preserving your estate for your heirs.

Here too, several options are available, including the gift of an existing policy, the purchase of a new policy, the designation of a charitable organization as the beneficiary of a death benefit, etc.

Gift of Shares

You can transfer eligible securities (listed securities or others) to Les Grands Ballets Canadiens. This is the most tax-efficient form of giving: you receive an income tax receipt for the securities’ market value at the time the donation is made, without having to pay any income tax on capital gains.

This form of giving is ideal for anyone wishing to make a substantial donation without drawing down on their cash holdings.
