Cheryl Collins joined Orlando Ballet in 2016 as Director of Development, and since that time has grown annual Contributed Income from $1.4 million to over $2 million.  She has led the cultivation of the vast expansion of Orlando Ballet’s individual, corporate, and foundation relationships, securing major gifts and partnerships with Orlando Health, PNC Bank, Orlando Magic, Disney, Sonny’s BBQ, Dr. Phillips Charities and Edyth Bush Charitable Foundation, among many others. Cheryl was a key contributor to the design and funding of the $12.5 million Harriett’s Orlando Ballet Centre.  An Orlando native, Cheryl spent 15 years with Orlando Health Foundation prior to joining Orlando Ballet.
