You can make a real difference with your gift of any amount!!

We're thrilled to announce that Hedwig Dances has been selected by the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation to receive a 1:1 matching grant of $20,000 this year!

To earn this grant we must secure gifts from new donors, lapsed donors (if you missed a donation to Hedwig last year, you qualify) as well as increased gift amounts from current donors. Your generosity will go especially far this year.

No matter what your gift, your support this year will result in the following outcomes:

The first $20,000 we receive will be matched by another $20,000 from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation to establish our first ever reserve fund! This reserve fund is critical to us as it provides immediate access to funds for important projects that will bring income later, such as:

  • the development of a new work, such as the work we will produce at a major Chicago venue next winter; or
  • setting in motion an international tour such as we'll undertake in September when we perform FUTURA in Dessau Germany.

All funds earned above the first $20,000 will be earmarked for:

  • Developing the next generation of choreographers within our company of dancers in the Hedwig Dances' uniquely compelling, evocative and unforgettable tradition of dance-making forged by founder Jan Bartoszek
  • Performances in heretofore unexplored iconic environments
  • An expanded season of performances in and for underserved communities
Help us reach our goal with your gift today!
