Giving in a Dancing Classrooms’ level is a yearly donation-based membership program, for three years. During each year, we will offer renewal reminders, and at the conclusion of your third year, our team will provide a path to renew or upgrade your commitment.

Our livelihood depends on the generosity of a vibrant donor community to power Dancing Classroom’s vision of creating schools and communities where every child is connected, respected, and given an environment in which to thrive. 

Recurring monthly donations provide convenience and enable you to automatically renew your support, omitting any manual donations, for years to come. When you contribute with a recurring donation, you understand and authorize your securely stored credit card to be charged each month. You can change, update, or cancel your monthly donation at any time, by emailing Dani Biggs at dbiggs@dancingclassrooms.org

We gladly accept donations made through donor-advised funds (such as Fidelity Charitable, for example). Please consider recommending a grant through your DAF sponsor to Dancing Classrooms to help us serve more students through the powerful practice of dance.

If all goods and benefits are fully waived by the donor, donation payment via DAF is acceptable.
