 Mission

Our mission is to help dancers in need.

By donating gently-loved dance gear (e.g., clothes, shoes, costumes) and collecting monetary donations to purchase new dancewear, we benefit underprivileged dancers in cities across the United States and internationally.

Dance and charitable giving are integral parts of my life. I have been training in dance since I was three and started competing at eight years old.

I am a dancer.

I understand the time and commitment required to nurture a love of dance. It requires years of dedication involving time, sacrifice and money.

At Dancers Donate, we aim to help dancers in need. In addition to the tireless effort and hard work mandated by every performance, training requires dance gear. Your support helps Dancers Donate equip dancers whose families lack the financial resources to access the clothing and supplies necessary to pursue their love of dance. By assisting us with our mission, you allow us to deliver equal opportunity for all dancers.

The Charitable Journey

How We Identify the Need

We research and identify dance studios that provide instruction to students in communities where poverty rates are higher than the local/national/international average.

 

Dancers Donate has made impact both nationally and internationally, expanding our reach beyond California to Illinois, New York, Asia and Africa.

Please contact us if you are an organization that could benefit from our donations.
