An individual, dance circle or nonprofit.
Up to $400 for projects that support the Dances of Universal Peace (DUP). Examples of projects include:
- a guest Dance teacher’s travel/fees or honoraria
- presenting DUP events to new constituencies or youth
- leader training
Applications are due March 15, June 15 and September 15. We will consider future events only, i.e., we don’t fund past events.
Grant applications must address one or more of the following goals:
a) Promote and encourage increased participation in the DUP.
b) Encourage excellence in Dance leading and Dance meeting facilitation.
c) Encourage cooperation, sharing of resources and talents among Dance circles and communities.
d) Foster teamwork among dance leaders in the same Dance circle, community or region.
e) Enable youth to enjoy the DUP and have meaningful experiences at camps and retreats.
The fine print:
Only one grant per calendar year.
- Wiring funds is expensive, we look for alternatives.
Dance Leader Trainings: Leading a multi-year training and want to help finance trainees? Go ahead and apply! It will then be up to you to distribute the funds. We will consider the funding amount for each DLT separately. Because we are funding the DLT as a whole rather than the individuals, if a trainee applies here, we’ll send them to you. First year of the training only.
