Giving Level-Resized

Giving Levels & Benefits

The American Dance Festival thanks those who generously support our work to preserve, promote and present modern dance.

As a non-profit organization, ADF must rely on the incredible generosity of our friends and supporters to meet more than 50% of our yearly budget. There are many ways individuals can support our programs through the ADF Fund, including donations, matching gifts from employers, or dedicated gifts in honor of someone special. In return, we thank our donors by providing many special benefits.

Donor benefits are listed below at each giving level. In order to receive the full tax deduction allowable by law, you may decline benefits that carry a monetary value. To receive tickets for the Opening Night performance and the Fête, donations must be received by June 10, 2015. If you wish to receive ticket benefits with your donation, please notify us when you make your donation. Contact development@americandancefestival.org or call 919-684-6402 for details.
