We are aiming high in three goals for this year and beyond:

  1. Maintain our own accessible studio space to call home in the Boston area 

  2. Putting the people of our organization first through monetarily supporting our artists and admin

    1. None of us in ADB are full-time, including Founder/Director Ellice

  3. Develop financial reserves through endowments, grants, and a large donor pool in order to sustain our performance, outreach, and educational programs

In order to do so, we need your support! Please click on the button above to donate to Abilities Dance through our Paypal Giving Fund page.

Our organization is exempt from federal income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3). Donors can deduct contributions they make to us under IRC Section 170. We are also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers, or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522. (Our Tax ID number is 82-4468746.)

To discuss corporate sponsorships, grants, and/or endowments, please do not hesitate to contact Director Ellice Patterson directly at ellice@abilitiesdanceboston.org !


We thank our past and present funders for allowing us to make space in the greater Boston area:
