Sustainers & Funders

Sustainers and funders help float the full picture of our work, including what we do behind-the-scenes.

We make connections, build community, and bridge the gap between art and business. By becoming a sustainer, you are not only supporting Dance Wire, but the 450 dance organizations and countless artists we serve. There are 39 different styles of dance in Portland and a wide variety of performances, participatory events, and classes to explore. Our website is the hub where Portland’s flourishing dance scene becomes visible to the public. Dance Wire makes it easy and FUN for everyone to get involved in dance!

Want to help keep Portland dancing? Sustainers can help by:

  1. Making a monthly donation or larger cash investment in our programs.
  2. Offering in-kind products or services.

We are also open to hearing your own unique ideas! Just schedule a meeting with our Strategic Partnerships Lead, Emily Running, to get started.
