Financial Assistance for Chicago’s Professional Dance Community
The Dancers’ Fund provides financial assistance (grants) to dance community professionals dealing with critical health issues creating a significant financial, emergency, or catastrophic hardship. Although this program was created in response to the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the dance community, our mission has now broadened. The fund offers assistance in, but not limited to, the following areas: housing, utilities, insurance, medication, and travel.
Established in 1994, The Dancers’ Fund serves as a model of how a creative community can respond to a crisis and community needs with effectiveness and compassion.
