    Gifts In Kind

    One way you can support the ministry is through donations of gifts-in-kind such as vehicles, real estate, collectibles, and other items of value that may either be used by the ministry or sold with the proceeds going to support the organizations needs.  Donors will receive a tax-receipt for the fair market value of items donated.  


    Examples of donations we have received include: Audio Systems, Artwork, Collectibles, Stage Lighting Equipment, Photography Equipment,  Fitness Equipment, and business donations of goods and services for raffles and auctions.

  • Would you consider hosting a small online or in home fundraiser for us?  There are simple ones that only require a couple minutes of your time and others that would take longer to host but they both can all be effective methods of raising support and awareness for the ministry.

    Facebook Fundraisers


    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


    Common Facebook fundraisers are Birthday or Anniversary Fundraiser but you can do them at any time for any reason or no reason at all other than to show your support for the ministry.  


    All you need to do is set a goal when creating a fundraiser, invite people to give to the fundraiser, and share the fundraiser to your news feed.  There is stock wording already in place or you can write your own donation request.  We encourage you to thank your donors as they give. 


    Thank you for considering partnering with us in this way of raising support!

    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.

Ministry Needs

“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”  Matthew 9:37-38


During the past two years we, like many other ministries, have seen a downturn in monthly support.  While our regular monthly support has declined, God has continued to provide for the ministry through one time gifts from individuals like you that have helped to make up a significant portion of the difference!  


We are so grateful to everyone who has stepped forward during this time to ensure that the ministry continues to thrive in the season ahead!!   


Currently, we need to raise our monthly support by $850 per month to restore us to our pre-COVID operating budget.  Every gift no matter what the size helps to make a difference! 


Thank you for prayerfully considering a partnership with us in the Gospel work that we are doing through your one time gift or recurring!

Special Giving Needs

While Paradosi relies upon regular monthly support and one time gifts to cover our operating budget; we also have special giving needs that will help to send us out into the world!   If your heart is pulling you towards giving to a specific need in the ministry, we would love to hear from you!   Thank you for your prayerful consideration in supporting our special giving goals in the year ahead!


Please know that when you request funds to go for a specific purpose, we hold those gifts in an account for that request until such time as needed to fulfill that purpose. 

North America Outreach Tours

Motorhome Fund

Special Giving Need • Fully Funded RV Goal : $35,000

Funds Raised as of 05/01/2022: $14,600


We have been praying about a motorhome for the ministry for the past few years and now that we are slowly emerging from the pandemic we feel that this is the season where we are to actively pursue this goal!!! 


Having a motorhome as a tool in the ministries toolbox will be an essential part of our ministry as we start to come out of the pandemic.  


A   motorhome  will help to open doors for us to share the gospel of Jesus throughout North America for many years to come. 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 while on the road. 


We have been looking at the used RV market in our region and have set a fully-funded goal of $35,000 to purchase a used lower mileage motorhome. 


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

International Outreach Tour

Summer of 2023

Throughout the ministries history we have embarked on International Outreach Tours sharing the hope of Jesus through the arts.  In 2020 we had planned to return to Europe and started our fundraising but due to the pandemic, our plans were placed on hold.  


We are currently praying about returning with a team to Europe during the upcoming summer and we will need your help to go!   Our partners are eager to have us return to come along side them in their Gospel work and we pray that we are able to join them again this summer.

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 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 need partners who want to come along side us in reaching 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
