Why We Need Your Help
Our programs and mission are supported first of all by our members, both groups and individuals. That support helps CDSS provide many services to the dance and music community. Other programs and services depend upon the direct participation of both members and nonmembers at our summer camps and on the financial generosity of members and friends who make gifts beyond the basic membership fees. (Thanks to all our 2020 Donors!)
Your gift to CDSS is fully tax-deductible. No goods or services will be given in exchange for any portion of your donation. CDSS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and our Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 04-3031125.
