Let’s make this simple

We are a registered charity & our regular funders are Arts Council England, AGMA & Manchester City Council.

As we are a charity, we would love for you to D0NATE whatever you can, but only if you want to. All money you donate will help us continue to provide events alongside our range of participatory projects for different community groups, & our support to dance artists & companies, making them accessible to all.

So if you want to help us promote dance, help a community project, or just enjoyed a show, please…


More about what we do

We are a charity working to increase access to high quality dance activity, to under-represented communities. We run creative projects throughout the region, also offering advice & information. We want to break boundaries & offer new experiences both to artists & audiences. Dance Manchester’s work ranges from a number of exciting community projects in the Greater Manchester districts; such as ‘Stride’, our boys and young men’s project, & ‘Signatures’ our young people’s showcase in partnership with the Lowry, to the free international festival, ‘Urban Moves’, & lots in between! Working closely with dance artists & companies, arts organisations, community groups, venues, local authorities & funders, we aim to continue to increase opportunities for dance in our area, & to help put the region firmly on the dance map!


About “D0NATE”

Launched in March 2013 by the National Funding Scheme (NFS), and now available across the UK, DONATE has been created to allow everyone to be part of our cultural diversity and heritage. They have made it easy for you to give to the things you care about and, if you give your permission, the receiving institution can stay in touch to let you know how its fundraising is going. If you want to stay anonymous, then that’s fine too.

The NFS is a registered charity set up to support other cultural charities; it does this through the DONATE platform, which it provides FOR FREE to arts and heritage organisations. Because they’re a charity, they don’t charge a joining or monthly management fee to use DONATE – unlike commercial platforms such as Just Giving. The NFS also take a smaller percentage of the donation than commercial providers (no more than 4%).


Gift aid

If you set up an account with DONATE, ‘Gift Aid’ can be reclaimed on your donations. Simply put, Gift Aid is a gift from the government to us, the charity, out of the tax you have already paid. It costs you nothing, but can increase your donation by 25% or more! Please register once, to add Gift Aid to all of your future donations, no matter the charity.
