 Sustaining Initiative 

The Sustaining Initiative invites our patrons to add to the longevity of the Festival by making small monthly contributions to our bottom line. These funds directly support the Festival's administrative needs, artists' fees, marketing costs, rental expenses, and increase outreach possibilities. 


Small monthly donations allow us to dedicate more time throughout the year towards producing the Festival.

A little goes a long way!


Any amount ($5, $10, $15, $20) pledged towards our Sustainability Initiative is greatly appreciated and 100% tax deductible.


Sustaining donors will be recognized in all Dance Gallery Festival programs and will be listed on our website.
