What does it mean to sponsor a Paradosi dancer?  To be clear, gifts given to the ministry do not pay a dancers' salary directly; the gift is given in honor of the dancer.   Any donations received go to the company and not to the dancer. As Paradosi is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, gifts to the ministry cannot be used to directly benefit any one individual.  The staff and board determine how the gifts will be used within the ministry.  

What is the benefit if the dancer is not directly paid from my gift?

It is our hope that sponsors will form a connection with the dancer that they are sponsoring.   We want a bond to be developed between you and the dancer so that you can better understand who they are, intercede in prayer for the dancer, and support them as they serve in this ministry.  We cannot do this without the love, prayers, and support of people like you! 

Sponsored dancers will send periodic letters to their sponsors sharing about their experiences and interactions during the season.  Sponsors will also receive special invitations to sneak peak in studio worship events and other programs throughout the year.  

When you begin to know the dancer, hear their stories, learn about their hearts and why they are doing what they do we hope that you will grow to love them as much as we do and support them in their calling.
