With your support we can keep helping

The Dance Professionals Fund receives no funding. As such we are reliant on donations and legacy giving from people who care about the dance profession and those who dedicate their working lives to it.

If dance has been important to you at any point in your life, either watching or taking part, please consider donating to us.

Your support will help current and former dancers, dance teachers, choreographers and choreologists. We run a wide range of grant programmes and tailored support to dance professionals.


Donating to us

You can donate to us via our CAF donate button. One off donations are easy to make and are very welcome. A regular standing order can also be set up using CAF donate and will provide us with support over a longer timeframe.


In Memoriam Giving

By making an In Memoriam gift to Dance Professionals Fund, you can pay tribute to a loved one while also making a direct contribution to our work.

An In Memoriam gift is sometimes made in tribute to a loved one through a funeral collection or on the anniversary of a special occasion. If you want collections to be made for our charity in this way, normally the person arranging the service will provide details are provided on the order of service sheet of how to donate.

We are also on JustGiving, where you can create a special In Memoriam webpage in the name of your loved one. Then invite friends, family and work colleagues to make their gifts online.

You are very welcome to contact us for an informal chat about how you can make an In Memoriam gift to pay tribute to someone special.
