It has become increasingly difficult for us to rely entirely on sponsorships and grants, especially with the volatile economic climate and funding cuts.
As a growing Festival, we try our best to cultivate a healthy environment where everyone can work professionally and effectively, so that we can focus on bringing you a well-thought-out performance, class, workshop or talk that is excellently and sincerely executed. Yet oftentimes, sustaining such an environment means that we risk a financial deficit. This year, we are aiming to raise SGD5,000 through your donations.
Why are we doing this? Because we believe that contemporary dance adds value to our wellbeing, and our Festival celebrates that. We view dance artists as professional jobholders who should be reasonably paid for their contribution to society. Beyond the aesthetics and physicality of the art form, contemporary dance promotes critical thinking, offers multiple perspectives, and pushes us to be more reflective about contemporary issues we face in the rapidly-changing world today.
And as reach our 10th edition this year, we know that we want to keep this Festival growing and soaring for the next 10 years. We want to continue contributing to society, and we want to do it even better.
No amount is too small. Your donation will enable us to apply for the Cultural Matching Fund, which will match your contribution dollar for dollar.
As we are a charity with IPC status, you will be entitled to 250% tax deduction on any amount that you have donated to us. For instance, if you have donated $100 to us, $100 x 250% = $250 will be deducted from your taxable income next year. Please join us in making the 10th edition of M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival a great one.
