View Donor Bill of Rights

The Annual Fund

The DCDC Annual Fund empowers the future of this dynamic dance company you know and love. Every day, giving fuels DCDC to continue impacting the world.

General Operating

General operating support is vital to our mission and helps fund our rehearsal space, technology, staffing, marketing, and more as DCDC performs on the road and at home.

Quasi Endowment

DCDC has a Restricted Reserve account which serves as a quasi-endowment. This fund can only be utilized with DCDC Board approval and the funds must be replaced within six months. It serves as the foundation for DCDC’s future. A recent gift started the fund with $100,000.

Artistic Support

DCDC is all about the artistry. In every motion, in every step, in every look, the artistry is involved. Costuming, staging, travel, choreography, dancing, and more go into the artistic creation of DCDC’s world-renowned activities. You can assist with artistic passion with support of this fund.

Dancer Enhancement

Everyone loves the dancers and they are the core of DCDC. Some dancer expenses must be dealt with as funds are available. DCDC dancers are contractual for only 36 weeks of the year. Health care and other costs must come out of their pockets. All funds donated here support dancer enhancement.

Foundation and Government Support

DCDC is grateful to the foundation and government funders who support our work and invest in our mission to share, inspire and connect. Grants provide critical revenue that supports diverse and expressive artistic programs and funds special projects that help to improve the organization’s capacity and operations.
