Choreographing Carolina Ballet's Future 

A 5-Year Matching Gift Challenge

Over the past 18 months, Carolina Ballet has been unrolling a campaign to lay the foundation for the future of the company. Thanks to a leadership gift from Steve and Judy Zelnack, any new donations or increases of existing donations will be matched up to $150,000 per year over 5 years with a potential total of $750,000. After exceeding our goal for the first year, receiving more than 50 new multi-year pledges and increasing our planned gifts by 30%, we are well on our way to reaching our $6 million goal that will ensure the stability and future of Carolina Ballet.
