Thanks for your interest in supporting our work!

Your support can have a significant impact on our annual programs. You can offer your support through three main channels: Membership, Charitable Giving, and Planned Giving.

MEMBERSHIP

When you join or renew as a member of Dance for PD, you receive annual benefits relative to your level of giving. Visit our membership page for details. Memberships are fully and partially deductible to the extent provided by law.

CHARITABLE GIVING

When you make a donation to Dance for PD, you provide vital support for our annual programs. Your gift will be fully tax-deductible to the extent provided by law. This method of giving is often chosen by supporters who do not wish to receive the benefits provided with membership and prefer full tax-deductibility of their gift.

DANCE FOR PD® is a program of Discalced, Inc. (dba Mark Morris Dance Group), a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization.

LEGACY SOCIETY – PLANNED GIVING

Planned gifts provide for Dance for PD’s future while creating a lasting and meaningful legacy for you and your loved ones. When you name Discalced Inc. (the Mark Morris Dance Group’s legal 501c3 name) and the Dance for PD program in estate plans through bequests, gift annuities, charitable trusts, and beneficiary designations, you will automatically become a part of our Legacy Society. Your gift may have valuable tax benefits to you.

How does it work?

Planned gifts are determined in the present day and granted at a later date, often providing benefits to the donor such as reduced income and estate taxes. Planned gifts can be made to Discalced, Inc. (our legal nonprofit name) and ear-marked for Dance for PD through IRA Charitable Rollovers, Bequests, Donor-Advised Funds, and Life Insurance and Retirement Plans. All funds will be used for annual programs unless otherwise designated toward a specific use.

Bequests can be made to through a living trust or will. This type of planned gift can be assigned a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your total estate. Discalced, Inc. and Dance for PD can also be designated as a contingent beneficiary should other beneficiaries predecease the donor. Bequests often significantly reduce the sum of your taxable estate.

Life Insurance and Retirement Plans are other vehicles through which donors can support Dance for PD. Life Insurance policies can be donated as tax-deductible gifts, with premiums still being paid on donated policies considered tax-deductible contributions as well. Assets from Retirement Plans such as IRAs, 401Ks, and 403Bs can also be given to Discalced Inc. (ear-marked for Dance for PD) as charitable gifts at significantly reduced taxation rates.

If you have planned for Dance for PD in your will, or would like information on how to do so, please contact Michelle Amador, Director of Development at 718-624-8400, ×208.
