Our Sponsors

The 2021 season is supported by our founding and sustaining sponsor Akron Community Foundation, which manages endowments established for Ohio Ballet created by the Knight and GAR Foundations. Financial support is also being provided by the Ohio Arts Council, Peg’s Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Musson Charitable Foundation, and The University of Akron. The festival also receives support from Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board and Direction Home as well as generous “Friends of the Festival” individuals who have made contributions in Poll’s memory and in support of continuing the summer tradition.
