Planned Giving

Imagine the impact you could have

Have you ever thought about the impact dance has had on your life? Or on the lives of the people you love?

Whether we have been in the audience as a dance appreciator, or involved directly in dancing or dance-making, many of us have fond memories of attending or participating in a first dance performance or class. These opportunities are sometimes taken for granted until we look back to see what events, resources, and people in our lives gave us access to be inspired and enriched by dance.

At Dance Victoria, we work hard to seek out world-renowned dance companies to perform at our historic civic theatres – in front of our engaged and appreciative audience – and we strive to increase community access with these artists. With approximately 50% of Dance Victoria’s revenue coming from ticket sales, we are dependent on the support of funders at all levels of government, foundations, sponsors and – importantly – individual donors. 

We invite you to consider the impact your gift could make on the lives of others – after looking after your loved ones – by thinking now about a gift in your will (bequest), or other planned gift including the donation of securities (click here for a simple form), insurance, or other future gifts. A considered plan today can realize your philanthropic gestures and enable you to enjoy the rewards of your generosity firsthand.

You may find the website useful as it is a Canadian public education campaign that provides excellent resources. If you do not have a will and you have a simple family and financial situation, you may find the services of this Canadian online service useful since they provide free access to simple estate planning.

We welcome the opportunity to discuss how your bequest or ongoing legacy gift can contribute to Dance Victoria’s continued success as we embark on our 27th season.

Please feel free to email Gillian Jones, our Executive Director, to start the conversation. We’d be so happy to hear your thoughts, your hopes, your dreams, so that you too can be part of sharing the joy of dance even further in our community.

We highly recommend that any Planned Giving decisions are made in consultation with your trusted advisors and family members so that those close to you understand your wishes.
