Provide Support for a Specific Purpose
When you support our General Operations, you are funding all activities of the Ailey organization and creating a stable base from which Ailey can thrive financially, expand artistically and fulfill our mission—to provide dance performances, training and community programs for everyone.
You can provide support for Ailey’s commissioning of new works, furthering our commitment to building a diverse repertory and nurturing the growth of talented dancers and choreographers.
You can help us provide vital financial assistance through scholarships for The Ailey School’s most talented and deserving young dancers.
Arts In Education & Community Programs
You can support our unique educational initiatives across the country, allowing Ailey’s Arts In Education & Community Programs to reach nearly 100,000 people each year.
You can help maintain and expand AileyCamp, our innovative summer camps that use dance as a vehicle for developing self-esteem, creativity, and critical thinking skills.
Make a lasting impact on any of the above programs by designating your gift to Ailey’s endowment. A growing endowment will further unleash Ailey’s potential and allow the organization to continue to transcend boundaries in all of its programs and inspire generations for years to come.
If restricted to a specific purpose, please speak with our Development Office first, to ensure that your gift is structured to accomplish your wishes and objectives.
