Lead Gift Patrons

We are indebted to former Chair, Norman Murray CBE and his wife Pam who have made a transformational gift to fund a feature length film and to tour a main stage production to New York City. In addition, Norman and Pam laid down a cask of Highland Park whisky to be auctioned in aid of the Scottish Ballet Endowment Fund during Scottish Ballet’s 75th anniversary in 2046.

Company Values

Scottish Ballet seeks to accept funding support from organisations and individuals that align with the companies values of Inclusion, Excellence and Innovation. This means being an active ally to organisations and individuals who demonstrate a sustained commitment to anti-racism and being inclusive to all protected characteristics. It also means initiating and maintaining relationships with organisations and individuals who protect the environment from misuse. We hope our patrons will also live these values as ambassadors of the company.

Fundraising Code of Practice

Scottish Ballet makes a commitment to individuals, trusts and foundations that make financial contributions towards our work; to be honest and transparent, respect privacy, and apply gifts responsibly to their intended purpose. Scottish Ballet undertakes to comply with all relevant laws including tax legislation, the Data Protection Act 1998, the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, and the Institute of Fundraising’s Code of Fundraising Practice.

Scottish Ballet adheres to the Fundraising Code of Practice four key principles: legal, open, honest and respectful.

If, however, you have a concern or complaint about Scottish Ballet’s fundraising practices, in the first instance we ask that you submit your concern in writing to the Executive Director. We will endeavour to resolve the matter, however, if you are not satisfied with the resolution, your concern will be referred to Scottish Ballet’s Board of Directors.

Complaints that can’t be resolved by Scottish Ballet will be referred to the Independent Fundraising Standards and Adjudication Panel for Scotland (the Panel), which will consider the complaint, decide if the charity has breached the Fundraising Code of Practice and make recommendations for remedial action. It will also consider whether there is a regulatory concern to report to OSCR (Scottish Charity Regulator).
