Foundation

On with the show! Help make a promising future a reality!

The Foundation supports the École nationale de cirque (National Circus School) in its mission of educational excellence and innovation. Thanks to the generosity of donors and partners, we assist talented young people from around the globe in realizing their full potential.  

Tuition fees, already high at present, cover only 13% of School expenses. For this reason, the Foundation relies on contributions from donors, including alumni, parents, friends, businesses and members of the circus arts community, to meet the School and its student's needs. 

Specifically, your donation means the National Circus School Foundation can continue to ensure programs that offer financial aid and adequate health services to students. And that the School can attract and retain the best teachers, upgrade existing equipment, and invest in research and innovation at the benefit of communicites. For more information, see our supporting funds.


''My education at the École nationale de cirque (National Circus School) taught me that the possibilities are endless if I work hard to achieve my goals. But I was not alone; both the School and the Foundation helped me realize my aspirations.''
