Children's Enchantment Fund

This Christmas, send a child to the ballet.

Our Children’s Enchantment Fund (CHEF) brings joyful new faces to our Nutcracker performances by distributing tickets to children who otherwise couldn’t attend. Through our partnership with Community Access Ticket Service, which identifies families served by nearly 400 social service agencies throughout the Bay Area, the Children's Enchantment Fund has helped more than 27,000 children and their families to attend San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker at no cost.  

Our heart goes out to all our North Bay neighbors who are suffering as a result of the recent fires, and so this year we have an added focus. We’re coordinating with North Coast Opportunities and Santa Rosa Dance Theatre to extend CHEF’s reach to children and families who were affected by the fires, in the hopes of bringing joy to a challenging holiday season.

Children’s Enchantment Fund is made possible by the generosity of individual ballet trustees and patrons. Can you help a deserving child attend Nutcracker free of charge?
