# A powerful legacy for future generations


If ballet has been a part of your life’s journey or your life has been impacted or enhanced by arts, we invite you to consider a bequest in your Will to celebrate the art form which has given you such pleasure. Ballet has the potential to impact more than dancers, but musicians, composers, designers, students and more.

Your decision to leave a gift for Queensland Ballet in your Will is a powerful legacy for future generations to enjoy the beauty and wonder of ballet in Queensland. To enable us to create experiences that can be life changing, and are life enhancing.

Throughout the decades, the Company has received support through bequests from many ballet lovers, each of whom has been moved by the wonder and beauty of this art form. Their generosity helps us to safeguard and nurture this precious experience for future audiences to enjoy.

Gifts left for Queensland Ballet are invested in perpetuity and interest from these funds is used to support our artistic, community and training programs. By notifying us of your bequest, we are enabled to plan with integrity for future generations to enjoy remarkable ballet experiences and ensure Queensland Ballet’s place in an artistically vibrant community.

A message from Nigel Gaynor

“It’s a joy to work with exceptional and passionate musicians, dancers, choreographers, coaches, designers, skilled costume makers and many others to produce a unique and special experience for an audience.

I’ve seen how the combined arts in ballet hugely inspire people of all ages. I believe it not only moves us deeply, but motivates everyone to get passionate and creative in something they love, whatever it is. This is why I am bequeathing to our wonderful Queensland Ballet, who enrich the lives of so many Australians.”

- Nigel Gaynor, member of the Charles Lisner Bequest Circle
