Named Awards and Bursaries


Board member Anne Delicaet with Executive Director Amanda Hancox

Invest in a dancer’s future by giving to a named award or bursary.
Awards and bursaries provide financial assistance to dancers in full-time retraining. This assistance is vitally important as many dancers could not otherwise afford the costs associated with retraining. 

Naming Opportunities

Establish an award in your own name or honour a colleague, family member, friend, group or company.  Named awards and bursaries can be made as annual gifts or endowments.

Endowments - Your gift will be held in perpetuity, serving many generations of dancers. Your contribution is safely invested, and the annual interest earnings are used to generate the award or bursary.  Capital requirements for establishing endowed named support begin at $25,000.

Annual Gifts – Your annual gift will be given to a dancer meeting the award criteria. A minimum commitment of $1,000 for 5 years is requested. The award continues as long as you continue to fund the award.
