Every year, friends of Performing Hearts help us provide logistical and other support to our programs through contributions. Since 2010, we have hired professional, paid instructors to lead Performing Hearts classes and events. We have also established dedicated facilities and equipment including dance rooms, guest/family rooms, and administrative space. These resources come at additional cost and any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
We make it easy -- you can make a contribution by:
Performing Hearts receives all of its operating resources from contributions - in many cases, from unsolicited donors and others as a direct result of fundraising activities. Performing Hearts is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Fundraising that is ongoing includes primarily website-based solicitations. Special event fundraising is based on one-time and annual events such as theater-based variety shows, annual gala / dinner dance and annual golf outings. Performing Hearts funding comes from three principle sources: (1) contributions from the general public, predominantly individuals; (2) contributions from corporate sponsors in the form of cash and supplies for the community service events; and (3) fundraising events such as annual golf events and special performances.
