# A powerful legacy for future generations
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.
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.
Gifts left for Queensland Ballet are 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 passionate musicians, dancers, choreographers, coaches, designers, skilled costume makers and many others to produce a special experience for audiences.
I’ve seen how ballet inspires people of all ages. This is why I am bequeathing to Queensland Ballet, who enrich the lives of so many Australians.”
