General Ministry Needs

Thank you for your interest in partnering with us in ministry through your financial support! Your gifts help to ensure that we have a studio to call home freeing us to head out into the world to proclaim the hope, love and beauty of Jesus to the world through dance!


Please prayerfully consider partnering with us financially in the year ahead through regular monthly giving or an annual gift that is meaningful to you.  We cannot do what we are called to do without your help.  Thank you for your support!

Special Giving Funds

The following are some specific fundraising goals that we have as a ministry.  A portion of every gift that we receive is applied to these funds but we need your support to make these goals happen. 


As a faith based ministry, we know that sometimes God places a specific need on peoples hearts and we want to honor this call to support a specific goal!  If you would like your gift to go to a specific fund, please let us know when making your pledge and we will apply your entire gift to that fund!   We cannot achieve these goals without your help and we are grateful for each gift that we receive.


Thank you for your belief in what we are called to do and answering the call to give towards these goals. 

International Outreach Tour

Summer of 2023

Throughout the ministries history we have embarked on International Outreach Tours sharing the love of Jesus through the arts.


During the summer of 2023 we are planning to return to Europe with a team to share the hope, love, and beauty of Jesus alongside our brothers and sisters in Christ!  Our partners are eager to have us join them in their Gospel work and we are ready to go! 


We need to raise a minimum of $15,000 by April of 2023 in order to send a team next summer for a month of ministry.  Please prayerfully consider supporting our Missions Fund with your gift. If giving online, please select Missions from the drop down menu.

Motorhome Fund

North America Outreach Tours

We have been praying about a motorhome for the ministry for several years and we are now fully pursuing this goal! 


We want to go to where the people are and to the places where a ministry like ours may never otherwise have an opportunity to share the hope of Jesus through the arts.  


A motorhome will serve as our base of operations while on the road opening up more territory while reducing our travel time, meal expenses, and housing expenses.


Thank you for your prayerfully considering supporting this goal as we prepare for this next chapter in the life of the ministry!  


GIVE ONLINE - Motorhome

____________


Just A Few of the Benefits of Having a Motorhome

  • We will be able to minister and stay in communities that cannot provide host homes for our dancers
  • We will be able to travel to locations in states that are more than a couple of days away from our last stop
  • Dancers will be able to rest better on travel days
  • We will be able to lower our food costs on the road while increasing the nutrition for our dancers over eating fast-food
  • We will reduce housing costs on nights where we do not have a program (We typically need to pay for 3 to 4 motel rooms)
  • We will be able to reduce the number of rest-stops on travel days (Usually 25-minute stops every 1.5 - 2 hours. This can add up to several additional hours on the road on long travel days) 

We have set a goal of $35,000 to purchase a used lower mileage motorhome that can be retrofitted with sleeping bunks.

____________


DONATE a MOTORHOME

If you have a motorhome in good operating condition that you would like to donate to us, we would love to put it to work in ministry! As Paradosi is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we can provide you with a tax-receipt for the fair market value of the vehicle!  


Ideally we are looking for a Class C motorhome with a cab-over sleeping area and a rear bed or bedroom that can be modified to accommodate bunks.  

Surrendered School of Dance Scholarship Fund

Since 2009 Paradosi has operated a dance school, Surrendered School of Dance, as a part of our vision to teach and reach the young helping them to grow in their relationship with God and to use their gifts to glorify the Lord.  Our dance school is open to all in the community regardless of their beliefs and serves as our local outreach throughout the year.   


We want to bless as many children in our communities as possible and do not want financial resources to be a hinderance to any child who wants to take dance classes with us.   With this in mind we offer needs-based tuition assistance, military tuition assistance, and financial assistance to  children in the foster care system through Olive Crest.  This tuition assistance is often offered with no funds available to replace what we are granting in financial aid. In some cases we continue to run classes without enough coming in from the class to cover the teachers wages.   


In 2020 we provided an average of $2,740 per month in financial assistance to families in need while receiving $2,930 in gifts pledged for the school during the entire calendar year.


We are seeking partners who want to come along side us in blessing the next generation for Jesus through the gift of dance.  


"Start children off in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

    Facebook Fundraisers are an easy way to generate gifts for the ministry that can be set up in just a few minutes.  To set up a fundraiser please go to the following link and select the Create a Fundraiser Raise Money button:  www.facebook.com/pg/Paradosiballet/fundraisers

    In-Home or Church Small Group Fundraisers


    Hosting a small fundraiser in your home or church for Paradosi is a great way to share about the ministry and raise support for what we are called to do for the kingdom.  These events give you an opportunity to act as an advocate for Paradosi sharing about the ministry, what we do, and the impact that the ministry has had on your life or in the life of others.  During the event, as the host, you would talk about the ministry, share a video or two from our YouTube page,  pray for the ministry, and make a request for support. 


    While we cannot be there in person for these events, we can provide links to download flyers, support packets, and other materials that you can print and hand out to your guests to help you in hosting a successful event.  

    Collecting Donations: 
    To avoid any legal complications with the collection of gifts and the issuing of tax-receipts, PLEASE do not collect money directly from individuals during your event.  Instead we request that you ask your guests to prayerfully consider making a gift to the ministry in an amount that is meaningful for them to give.  Guests may give by phone, online through our website, or send their gift directly to our studio.   A flyer with ways to give will be made available to download for distribution. 

    If you would like to know how your fundraiser went and if you met your fundraising goal, please provide us with a list of your attendees and we will share the total raised from your donors but not who gave or how much each individual gave. 

    Please know that with these events we do not want people to feel pressured or obligated to give.  By not collecting donations during the event it removes the pressure of being coerced to give.  We want people to give with a cheerful heart and not out of a feeling of obligation.  If God is calling them to support the work of Paradosi, He will convict them to do so.

    As the Bible says: "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Corinthians 9:7

    Small Fundraiser Ideas: 

    • Invite your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors to a dinner, BBQ, wine tasting, or tea party.  

    • Ask your church small group if you can host a night to share about an arts ministry that you support.
