The Power of Automatic Monthly Donations

Why Monthly Donations Matter

Monthly donations are crucial for Dancers Against Cancer, providing a steady stream of support that allows us to offer consistent aid to dancers battling cancer. This reliable funding enables us to plan and respond effectively, ensuring no dancer faces their fight alone. As a monthly donor, you join a community of compassion, directly impacting lives with every contribution. Your commitment helps sustain our mission, offering hope and vital support when it's most needed.


$ 50 / month

Every $50 contribution goes directly towards alleviating the medical expenses of dancers in need, offering substantial relief to both the dancers and their families during challenging times. This level of support can cover costs such as co-pays, prescriptions, and other unforeseen medical needs that arise, ensuring that financial hurdles do not stand in the way of essential care.


$ 150 / month

A $150 donation can significantly impact the day-to-day life of a dancer undergoing treatment by covering living expenses. This support provides not just the necessities of life, but also peace of mind, allowing dancers and their families to focus on healing and recovery, rather than financial strain. Whether it’s rent, utilities, or groceries, your donation brings comfort and stability during a period of uncertainty.

$ 300 / monthly

Contributing $300 can fund advanced therapeutic services that are vital to a dancer’s recovery process. This includes specialized treatments, rehabilitation, and counseling services that may not be fully covered by insurance. Your donation at this level supports the holistic well-being of the dancer, aiding in both physical recovery and mental health, ensuring they have access to comprehensive care tailored to their specific needs.

"Seeing our dance community come together with such heart and generosity was truly inspiring. Raising over $50k in one night at The Element Dance Center wasn't just a fundraiser; it was a powerful statement of solidarity and hope. It proves that when we unite for a cause as deeply important as fighting cancer, there's no limit to the impact we can make. This night was for every dancer facing a battle offstage, showing them they're not alone in this dance.".
