Velocity provides subsidized studio and performance space; a creative residency program that develops and promotes the work of movement artists locally and nationally; Guest Artist performances, and a robust training and education program for beginner to professional dancers. This tiered, community-based model allows us to serve dancers and movement artists in an impactful and sustainable way. None of these services are possible without the generous support of art lovers like you! In addition to one time and monthly recurring gifts, you can support Velocity in the following ways:



Velocity relies on our volunteers, work study volunteers, and interns. Please email if you’d like to join the hundreds of folx who keep Velocity moving. 


Matching Gifts

Velocity relies on direct donations to fund over 50% of our programming, and matching gifts are a great way to double or triple your impact. Velocity currently receives matching gifts from businesses and corporations like Expedia, Microsoft, Dell, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Nordstoms (including volunteer time matches), through the Seattle and King County employee giving programs and more. If you would like more information on matching gifts, please contact our Development Director here.


Donor Advised Funds

When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction through your donor advised fund. These funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to be directed to Velocity Dance Center. Common Donor Advised Funds include the Seattle Foundation, Fidelity Charitable, and more. Please contact our Development Director here or Executive Director here for more information.


Gift of Stock

We accept gifts of stock through our Schwab One Account. Please contact our Development Director here or Executive Director here for more information.
