There is a vibrant community of people who support Decidedly Jazz Danceworks. You can become an important part of our vitality and passion by making a personal tax-deductible donation.
There are a number of ways to have impact:
Donations under $500 - DJD gratefully welcomes and rewards donations of all sizes. Help us bring dance, new artists and dance education to life!
Send a Kid to Camp - For $300 you can help to fund a bursary for a child ages 5-17 from a low-income family to attend a summer dance camp or class at our School of Decidedly Jazz. Learn more about children’s bursaries.
Jazz Roots Club Donors - DJD donors who contribute $500 or more become members of our Jazz Roots Club. Members have direct relationships with our dancers, enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes experiences, and are vital contributors to bringing original jazz works to life and to the lives of others. Learn more about the Jazz Roots Club.
Contribute In Kind - valuable items & professional services - Are you a retailer or professional seeking to make an impact with what you do? Prizes and auctions are a vital way that DJD fundraises at our events and we welcome donations from flights, to vacation homes, to art through to electronics and jewellery. As a non-profit, we also welcome free expertise from professionals from lawyers, to HR advisers to PR experts, strategic planners and facilitators.
Tribute, Memorial and Planned gifts - Become part of DJD's legacy by making a gift by bequest (remembering DJD in your will), through stocks, securities or insurance policies. Mark a special occasion, sympathize with a loss, honour an important individual, or celebrate a great accomplishment with a gift to DJD.
Artistic Development Fund - Looking to make an artistic mark with your donation? Invest in the creation of vibrant, original jazz performances and talented Canadian artists. DJD is one of a mere handful of full-time, professional jazz dance companies in the world.
Endowment fund - Guarantee the long-term financial stability of DJD and leave a legacy by making a gift to the Endowment Fund. The interest earned by this fund will allow DJD, its dancers and its students, to further create and expand their artistic repertoire many years into the future.
