There are many ways to help Dancers Care Foundation become the No. 1 foundation for dancers and dance-related companies who are passionate about raising money for cancer. Below are some inspiring fundraising ideas put together by you, our devotees, and there’s something for every member of the dance community: Dancers, Dance Studios, Competitions and Conventions, Dancewear Manufacturers, Costume Manufacturers, Dance Retail Stores, Choreographers and Master Teachers.


Dance Studios That Care

Hold a “Performance Night Benefit Gala”
Studios from the same area join together in a collaborative effort to show that dancers care. Each studio performs 5-7 pieces aiming to make it a fun and fundraising event. Ticket sales will account for most of the money raised, but you can also have a raffle and sell items like snacks, baked goods and merchandise. We will gladly assist you in this endeavor.

Host master class “workshops” and donate funds directly to Dancers Care Foundation
Studios can host a master class and donate a portion of funds or all funds to Dancers Care Foundation to raise awareness.

Participate in our “Dance for a New Day Choreography Contest”
Dancers and studios can upload a 1 minute youtube clip of choreography to our song “New Day” and become involved in one of the largest video fundraising efforts in dance. Click here for details.

Send out our fundraising letter
This is the easiest way to help raise funds. We send you a pre-written fundraising letter that you can send to relatives, neighbors and local businesses for a tax-deductible donation in the name of your studio or school. Businesses can make direct donations.

Sell pink bracelets or Dancers Care pins
We send you the special bracelets and pins; you sell them at your studio for a minimum donation.

Your ideas can help inspire others. Email us now and tell us what you’ve done—or want to do—for the cause.


Competitions and Conventions That Care

Pass out Dancers Care Friend Cards at community events
We will send you a box of 1,000 Dancers Care Friend Cards for a grassroots approach to spreading our message and drawing more supporters. You can make special announcements at weekend events that describe your association with our organization and hand out the cards to attendees.

Pass Around our DCF collection can
Download our collection-can sign from our website, print it out, and cover a coffee can with it. Pass it around during downtimes and send your donation check to Dancers Care Foundation and we will publicly thank you on our Corporate Support page and Facebook Fan page.

Show our promotional videos
We will send you a DVD of the new Dancers Care promotion featuring SYTYCD alum Melissa Sandvig or our video with Courtney Galiano promoting our “Dance for a New Day Contest” to play at down times and awards events to educate students, parents and audiences about our mission. Click here to tell us what videos you would like and we’ll send them to you right away.

Dedicate a portion of merchandise proceeds
Choose one of your best-selling items, align the product with our logo, and let buyers know that their purchase supports the cause.

Take donations
Simply place a donation box or cup on your counter or table and send us the proceeds. Even spare change can really add up! We will publicly thank you on our Dancers Who Care page. Click here to see how other companies like you are making it happen.
