Our Current Campaign
Have you seen how much typical dance recital costumes cost??? On average they are $60-100 EACH. At Dance Project of Washington Heights we are about including everyone, whether or not they can afford to buy a $100 costume.
We are able to costume every student for an average of $15, top to bottom, including accessories. Incredibly, we have approximately 370 students performing this year! Our goal for this fundraiser is to raise a total of $7000 in order to costume all of our dancers, as well as cover a portion of the rental expenses for the United Palace stage. Can you sponsor a dancer for this important event in their life? Can you chip in for one dancer's costumes, or a whole class?
Your contributions help us grow! Partner with us today to help further our mission.
Our operations are made possible by small grants, contributions by our parents toward their children's classes, and by tax-deductible donations from generous individuals and corporations. Right now as you can see we're raising money for costumes, but there are many ways you can help us!
Sponsor a Class
Each class costs us $601.50/month to run. For a donation of $601.50, you can give 12-15 kids the gift of one month of dance! $150.38 pays for one class for that same group of kids, and $15.04 pays for one child's dance class.
Make a Recurring Donation
Consider doing a recurring monthly contribution to help contribute to our ongoing classes all year long.
Do you have skills we could use as a growing non-profit? Accounting, web site design, fundraising, HR experience, costume design, lighting or sound experience, stage management - we need help with all these areas and more. Speak to us about donating your professional time as an in-kind donation.
We believe in strengthening our diverse community, and your local business does, too. Partnering with us through corporate sponsorships is a great way to support a local organization while gaining exposure with our constituents. Contact us to see how we can help each other!
